Britain's Got Talent bosses have been accused of editing contestant's audition as it aired on TV.

Rare Species immediately got a standing ovation when the Queen appeared on stage to introduce them during this year's auditions.


Okay, it wasn't the real Queen, but the royal-themed comedy dance act got four yesses nonetheless.

"You would only get this on this bonkers show," David Walliams grinned.

However the show has faced claims from the act that the audition that aired on the telly wasn't quite what happened on stage.

The Radio Times reports that the performance saw the group originally dance to Sex Pistols' God Save the Queen.

When the audition aired on TV, the song had been replaced by Outkast's I Like The Way You Move.

Rare Species took to Instagram to remark in a now deleted post: “when you audtition to the Sex Pistols and they televise you dancing I Like The Way You Move”

They then uploaded their audition with the original song, writing: "Ah that's better! And more f**king like it.

"Gawd bless us everyone We will not be censored #rarespeciesuk #censorship #bgt #letthepeopledecide #music #sexpistols #anarchyintheuk #love #breathe #queen #alive #princecharles #hoorah #fakenews #notonyournelly #artists #viewer #truth #phew #share"

Britain’s Got Talent declined to comment on the claims, Radio Times says.


Britain's Got Talent 2017 continues Saturday night on ITV at 8PM with the final round of auditions.

The last pre-recorded episode will also see the judges pick the finalists for the live shows.
