New Britain's Got Talent judge Michael McIntyre has reportedly expressed concern with the apparent quality of this year's semi-finalists. According to Sunday tabloid The People, McIntyre is said to be worried that the 2011 series could be the worst yet!
The comedian joined the panel this year along with fellow newcomer David Hasselhoff, replacing Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan on the reality telly show. Despite having a great time at the auditions with long standing judge Amanda Holden, the stand up is now unsure of the talent he has put through.
“He’s concerned there won’t be a decent winner this year and the level of talent has shocked him – to say the least," a source revealed.
“Obviously the public want daft acts at the start for a laugh. But in the final everyone wants quality talent – and there isn’t any. Michael’s watched the show since it started five years ago and reckons this could be the worst year for a winner because they had to sift through so much rubbish to find anyone half-decent.
“Michael thought it would be easy to find some good acts out of the thousands they see – but he said it felt like he was banging his head against a brick wall. He hopes to be proved wrong.”
However the nosy insider added: “But he doesn’t regret joining the panel – he loves working with David and Amanda and thinks there’s really good chemistry between them.”
Britain's Got Talent kicks off on April 16 on ITV1.
