Beatrix Von Bourbon during the auditions for ITV's Britain's Got Talent programme

Tattooed burlesque dancer Beatrix Von Bourbon from London put on a red-hot audition for the Britain’s Got Talent judges, impressing Simon Cowell.

The performer was seen on Saturday’s ITV show peeling off her scarlet suit to reveal her tattoos for the panel.

The raven-haired trained dancer and fetish model performs in lingerie and feathers with saucy routines in clubs, but admitted it was daunting to appear at the audition.

Cowell tried to put her at ease, but she told him: “I’m a bit terrified.”

The 27-year-old, who took ballet and tap classes, added that she was nervous of being in front of so many people.

“I think it’s being out of my normal space,” she added.

After setting pulses racing, especially among the male contingent on the judging panel and audience, Beatrix was voted through to the next stage of the competition.
