Anonymous allegations about the connection between Britain's Got Talent finalist Ronan Parke and the show's production company Syco have been strongly denied by a rep for the show. The claims - supposedly from an 'insider' - have already spread around the internet, especially on sites like Twitter.
In a statement however, the company said: "There has been speculation on the internet that Britain's Got Talent finalist Ronan Parke was known to and worked with Syco/Sony Music before entering the show.
"There is no truth in this story whatsoever. Ronan first came to Syco/Sony's attention when he entered this year’s competition."
They added: "Syco/Sony Music will not hesitate to take whatever legal action is appropriate to prevent further publication of these unfounded allegations.”
Ronan Parke won Tuesday's semi final and will compete in Saturday night's Britain's Got Talent 2011 grand finale.
