After buzzing the act, Simon Cowell later apologized for buzzing too soon. After hearing the news that Paddy had broken her rib while practicing a new routine with Nico on May 29, Amanda Holden expressed her disappointment, saying, “Ever since I first saw Paddy dance, I fell in love with her.
She had a great chance to win the entire competition, in my opinion. The next day, however, it was revealed that Paddy and Nico would continue to compete in the program because Paddy’s health had improved after the accident and she had received the all-clear from medical professionals.
In her statement, Paddy said that she had informed the show’s producers that she thought she was “healthy enough to dance” and added, “Britain’s Got Talent is something I very much want to do.”
On May 31, Paddy and Nico, who had defeated vocalist Bailey McConnell in the semi-finals with three favorable votes from the judges, advanced to the show’s finals. On June 7, 2014, they competed in the live final with a different routine, placing ninth overall.
