Miracle, a rescue dog and his owner Amanda Leask stole the show on Britain’s Got Talent this week with their heartbreaking yet incredible magic act.

Together the duo performed a magic trick in which judge Simon Cowell had to pick four dogs at random from a pack of cards containing the pictures and names of her forty dogs.

Viewers and the judges alike were left sobbing as the 49-year-old - who lives in Scotland with her husband and son Kyle, who suffers with cerebral palsy and autism - explained why she owned so many dogs.

It was soon revealed that Miracle had been a victim of the dog meat trade and was rescued in 2013.

The dog-lover and her family nurtured Miracle back to health and continued rescuing dogs.

The magic pair then asked the judges to reveal their cards, which showed her dogs named Grace Kelly, Braveheart, Marilyn Monroe and Jean Harlow.

Amanda revealed that although she couldn't have brought all forty dogs to the audition with her, Miracle knew which dogs they would pick.

The four chosen dogs then trotted onto the stage, to the amazement of the audience.

Amanda and her five dogs went home with four yeses, with Cowell saying: "I have no idea how you did it. You've made your point very very clearly.

"There were times I couldn't watch it I have to be honest with you, what happens in the dog meat trade should be stopped and it takes people like you to get the message across."

David Walliams said: "Obviously you're an incredibly special lady to dedicate your life to looking after these wonderful animals.

"We're all over the moon to meet these beautiful dogs and I don't know how you did that either with the cards."

While Alesha Dixon said that the act made her feel proud to be on Britain’s Got Talent.
