Britain's Got Talent 2013: Amanda Holden tells singers to stop being so depressing!

Amanda Holden (Superstar)

Amanda Holden has told singers auditioning for Britain's Got Talent to stop being so depressing.

This year has seen more singers than ever auditioning for the variety show, but Amanda just wants them to be more positive.

Speaking to us at the BGT 2013 auditions in London this week, Amanda called on this year's auditionees to cut the sob story songs about being dumped.

Amanda admitted: "We've had a lot of people singing about being dumped."

But she insisted that she didn't agree with the criticism that there were 'too many' singers on the show.

She said: "I don't mind singers, but not ones who have been dumped, so come and sing if you're happily married or in a relationship!"

The West End star added: "We've had Aerialists, Rollerskaters, we've had load of variety"

And Amanda said she was still after a good stand up comic some seven years after the show.

"It needs a decent comedian, it's a tough thing to be able to achieve, it's such an immediate thing, you need to get a laugh within 30 seconds " she told us.

BGT starts on ITV later in the Spring.
