Amanda Holden inspired my act, says pants artist Anthony Wait!

Anthony Wait

50-year-old underwear artist Anthony Wait has revealed his wacky and somewhat disturbing act was inspired by none other than Amanda Holden. The oddball, who stripped for the judges and then painted with the multiple pairs of pants he removed, said Amanda had given him the idea...

As we previously revealed, Anthony has auditioned for the show before - and even managed to get a yes from Simon Cowell last year with his equally wacky act. Unfortunately Amanda and Piers saw sense and he didn't make it through to the live finals.

"I've auditioned before. Last time, I used a space hopper to paint the floor, and the judges gave it the thumbs down," Antony explained to The Sun today.

He added: "Amanda said my performance was 'pants', so she inspired my new act - painting with pants! I thought she'd love it."

Unfortunately however Amanda didn't love it, and with no Simon Cowell on the panel this year it was three nos for Anthony.

Dread to think what we'll see next year...
