Britain’s Got Talent’ star, Antonio Francis who was popularly known as ‘Popeye’ for his bizarre eye-bulging has sadly died aged just 54 years old.
Francis who got to the 2011 semi-finals with his unusual routine, which saw him pop out his eyeballs to the beat of the music, died on Saturday after a stroke and brain bleed, his family said.
A family statement said Mr Francis battled health problems in the years after the show, moving to Barbados before returning to Britain.
His son Dan, who also appeared on the show in 2013, revealed he had been sleeping rough since his return to the UK and was found unconscious on the floor by a friend six days after collapsing.
His family is now raising money to fund a funeral for him back in the Caribbean so he can be buried near his mother in Barbados.
