Amanda Holden has tipped a youngster to win the 2011 series of Britain's Got Talent, saying that the show has seen a lot of "amazing children" audition this year. The talent judge added that despite the increase in kids, there have been fewer pushy mothers!
"I don't want to ruin any surprises but the standards are brilliant and there are an awful lot of amazing children," Amanda told News Of The World today. "I think a child will win if I had to put money on it. None of their acts are cheesy or cutesy but really heart-warming.
"These are all the things that BGT wants - and we've got surprisingly few pushy mothers this year!"
The 29-year-old, who this year joins forces with Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff on the judging panel, revealed some of the other acts we can expect to see when the show returns on Saturday.
"Michael's favourite is a dog act that goes horribly wrong," Amanda teased, "It's two Chihuahuas that came on stage and did the complete opposite of what they were supposed to. It was so funny.
"There are also amazing gymnasts, circus acts, animal acts and dangerous acts. It'll be the best year yet, I'm sure of it."
Britain's Got Talent 2011 starts on April 16 at 20:20 on ITV1.
