A DJ who appeared on TV's Britain's Got Talent is hoping his new song will become the World Cup anthem.

Gold-toothed rapper DJ Talent, real name Anthony Ghosh, from Beckenham, is confident that his song It's just for you England FC will become the top spot single when the England side is in South Africa this summer.

The 31-year-old struck fame when he appeared on the ITV show last year and boldly asked Kelly Brook out on a date. He also claims he became close friends with Susan Boyle whose album I dreamed a dream became the fastest selling UK debut of all time.

Now the Chelsea supporting DJ is going head-to-head with Welsh singer and X Factor star Chico who is also releasing a charity single in time for the football tournament.

Mr Ghosh said: "I'm really excited, it's going to be a sensation. I'm going to sparkle. My music is deeper than Chico's. I have met him and he is a nice guy. May the best man win.

"I wanted to do something to support England because I'm very patriotic. It is good for the country to see that I am supporting the team as an artist. A lot of record companies are interested in the song including Sony."

The lyrics to the song include the lines: 'It's just for you England, are you ready to play? We're going to lift the trophy- it's the love of the game. Come on England. Come on England. Come on England. England is by far the greatest team the world has ever seen'.

Mr Ghosh is also hoping that X Factor judge Louis Walsh will take a chance and manage him as he plans to appear on this year's show.

He said: "I have met Louis before and I will meet him again when I appear as a contestant on the X Factor. Louis likes commercial gimmick acts. I am looking forward to some banter with Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole.

"I've had loads of support from sports channels, television channels and radio stations. Louise Redknapp and Holly Willoughby are both supporting it."

Since appearing on Britain's Got Talent, where Simon Cowell called his efforts 'horrific', the singer has starred in a bingo advert, recorded and released a self-produced album and performed at gigs up and down the country.

Mr Ghosh is hoping the song will be released on iTunes in about two weeks time.
