Just two days before the Britain's Got Talent final and arguably one of the biggest nights of his life, Tom Ball was rushed to hospital because of his type 1 diabetes - a condition that has seen him in and out of hospital since he was eight years old.

The secondary school teacher turned singing sensation has since been fitted with a new technology to help manage his diabetes which will soon be offered to other type 1 sufferers across the UK.Tom, 26, who hails from West Sussex, near Brighton – and married his fiancée back in November 2022 – stole the hearts of the nation when he took to the stage in 2022 to audition for Britain's Got Talent.

During his performance, he blew the audience away with his rendition of Sam Smith's Writing's On The Wall and received a standing ovation.

The singer made it all the way through to the BGT final, but just two days before was rushed to hospital with "dangerously high keytones levels".
