A GIRL with autism who doctors said would never speak has just auditioned for the hit ITV show Britain's Got Talent.

Unable to speak until she was six, Charlotte Fieldson, who has atypical autism, is now a confident singer.

Late last year the inspirational 15-year-old made it to the top three of the Chelmsford Schools Singstar competition, sharing a stage with her hero Olly Murs in front of 10,000 people at the town's Christmas lights switch-on.

Charlotte has sung solo at Chelmsford Cathedral and made her first CD, a song called When You Believe which has become the anthem for her school Columbus College.

Mum Jayne Harris credits the staff at the school for recognizing and nurturing Charlotte's talent.
