'21-11-2015 | ITV release footage of Britain’s Got Talent Singer who died from SUDEP' image

ITV has responded to request from the family and friends of the late Martin Morgan to release the footage of his audition for Britain's Got Talent. Martin died from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy in July this year. The footage of Martin's performance had never been broadcast until a Twitter campaign by his supporters persuaded ITV to release it four months later. 

It was Martin's dream to audition for the show and his audition was a enthusiastically received by the live audience for his singing of Enrique Iglesias's song "Hero" and for his personality. Martin had been seizure free for over a decade when he died unexpectedly in July. His supporters and friends have expressed the hope that releasing the footage will increase awareness of the risk of SUDEP, it was Martin's dream to be famous and said he is realising that dream in raising awareness.
