Former Shaymen striker Jamie Vardy was one of the judges who auditioned the public in a football celebration version of Britain’s Got Talent.

Vardy, Chris Smalling and legend Robbie Fowler joined TV presenter Reggie Yates to hunt for the ultimate goal celebrations for England’s big summer of football in France. The judging was part of Vauxhall #GetIN campaign.

Vardy gave his highest score to breakdancer Philip Mark Prescott, acknowledging the performance was “a bit of him” and confessing he is partial to a breakdance move or two himself.

Winning breakdancer Philip Mark Prescott won over all three judges with his head-spinning moves, scoring an impressive 26 out of 30. His unique celebration will now become the official #GetIN celebration for England this summer and performed at a live event by the talented winners.

Vardy said, “I thought lots of the acts were really talented. I used to actually watch all the break dancing competitions and the battle offs so I had a lot of time for Philip’s breakdance routine. Definitely a bit of me that.”
