ex-dealer and singing partner come fifth in BGT final

Retired motorcycle dealer Henry Hall, 84 (left), and singing partner Malcolm ‘Malc’ White, 75 – aka Doncaster duo The Pensionalities – came fifth in the final of Britain’s Got Talent at the weekend garnering 6.9% of the public vote. The winner was pianist Tokio Myers with 24.2%.

Henry joined Cusworths of Doncaster as a 14-year-old, took the business over in 1965, and then passed it to his son Chris in 1990.

A scrambler and trials rider in his younger days, Henry was singing in clubs as a young man and considered turning professional. But the beat of bike engines was the sound that appealed to him most, so he stayed with the bike trade.

Cusworths had most of the leading franchises including the Japanese Big Four. While the Cusworths of Doncaster name was last used in 2009, Chris runs Chris Hall Motorcycles of Doncaster, dealing mainly in second-hand bikes and classics, and father Henry attends the premises most days.
