David is crazy in love with Ian and Anne Marshall | Week 3 Auditions | Britain’s Got Talent 2016
Britain’s Got Talent sensation Ian Marshall spent his teenage years living on the streets – and tried to commit suicide after being raped twice.
Viewers watched ex chef Ian, 64, and wife Anne, 61, wow the crowd with their quirky rendition of Beyonce’s Crazy in Love – earning them the golden buzzer from judge David Walliams.
The smitten pair married just nine days after meeting in 1972 while serving in the army.
But the granddad Ian lifted the lid on his tragic youth, which saw him flee home aged just 14 after repeated beatings by his alcoholic dad.
Shortly after he began sleeping rough on the streets of Barnsley, Yorks, he was attacked by two men in their forties – who’d cruelly lured him to a house in the town by promising him a bed for the night.
