Bouncers forced to break up protest at Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions

Britain's Got Talent 2013 Simon's seat

Security were reportedly called in to separate an angry mob at the Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions in Glasgow after teenage duo The Elite were turned down by the judges.

According to The Mirror, 16-year-old singer Jenna Milroy and 14-year-old guitarist Jay Fitzpatrick wowed the audience with their performance at the SECC in Glasgow last month.

However, when it came to the judges' vote, only David Walliams and Alesha Dixon backed the Paisley-based pair - with Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden deeming them not good enough to go through.

Having failed to recieve the minimum three yesses required to go through, Jenna and Jay left the stage - and some unhappy members of the crowd decided to protest.

Jay told the newspaper: "The crowd went crazy – everyone started to roar ‘Bring back The Elite’ and started booing Simon. Later, people were running around going mental.

"That’s when the bouncers began to throw out the crowd that had gathered in the foyer on our side of the arena. They were going berserk. All these shouting people eventually got dispersed by the bouncers."

Jenna's dad Bobby later wrote on Facebook that the hopefuls had "performed brilliantly and behaved impeccably in extraordinary circumstances".

Addressing the news, a BGT spokesperson said: "The crowd were keen for The Elite to go through but it’s up to the judges. People were asked to leave because we needed space to load up for the next session."

The show returns to our screens in the Spring.
