Added: 18 May 2011

Mr Evans, who has also appeared on television balancing a mini car on his head, got the go-ahead from judges Amanda Holden and comedian Michael McIntyre, but US judge David 'The Hoff' Hasselhoff didn't understand the act's appeal and refused to give him the thumbs up.

However, with two votes Mr Evans is through to the next round and DIY Week is looking forward to seeing what he comes back with!
