Stavros Flatley set to announce shock split on the final of Britain's Got Talent: The Champions

Say it isn't so!

Father-and-son duo Stavros Flately won the nation’s hearts with their comical Greek version of Michael Flatley’s Lord Of The Dance on Britain's Got Talent back in 2009.

Now it has been revealed that they are set to announce their shock split on this weekend's BGT: The Champions final.

Lagi Demetriou, 23, is stepping down from the act in order to concentrate on running his own barbers shop in Cyprus.

The shop is bizarrely home to the Stavros Flately Museum, which located in the toilets!

Speaking to The Sun, Lagi said: "We’ve done this for ten years for a joke. We’ve done so many amazing things but what is there left to do?"

Said Demi: "He has a six-pack – I’ve given up getting one of those."

The duo shot to fame on BGT back in 2009 – the same year as Diversity and Susan Boyle.

It's claimed that they have earned more than £2m from the act, which they describe as "a joke that got out of hand".

When the duo appeared in the show's recent heats, viewers took to Twitter to declare that they "fancied" Lagi, so we're sure hearts will be broken come Saturday night.
