Her cause of death is unknown at this time.

Audrey wowed audiences when she auditioned for ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent during series 12 at the age of 90.

The judges praised the pensioner’s rendition of the classic song “I Wanna Be Loved By You.”

Her cheeky personality, however, made viewers at home fall in love with her.

When show judge Amanda Holden asked Audrey if she was married, she replied, “No, I was in love many, many times… “Gentlemen, 22.”

The singer’s comments earned her the moniker “minx.”

Audrey was a member of the veteran dance troupe The Roly Polys, who appeared as regulars on Les Dawson’s BBC show in the 1980s.

The singer and actress also played a variety of roles.

In 2017, she appeared in two episodes of Carters Get Rich before appearing in a York Pantomime.

At the age of 90, she made her pantomime debut as Potty T Potts in Beauty and the Beast.
