Britain's Got Talent 2013: Stephen Mulhern wants comic to win

Stephen Mulhern

Britain's Got Talent 2013 star Stephen Mulhern has said he's hoping for a comic to win this year's show.

Britain's Got Talent returns in two weeks' time, and the telly host will be back fronting the ITV2 spin-off More Talent.

Over the years the BGT live shows have been dominated by singers and dancers, and Stephen reckons this year is the time for a comic to shine.

He said: "I would love a comedian to win. It's the hardest thing because they get a short amount of time and you never know what the judges are going to be like.

"If they're in a bad mood, 
you do get a shorter amount of time - whether you think it's fair or not, that's how it is and that's how it always will be."

Meanwhile, speaking to DigitalSpy, Stephen rubbished those (now obviously made up) rumours he was set to quit the show.

He told the website: "I would never want to quit Britain's Got Talent - I really enjoy doing it and all of us are back this year."

Britain's Got Talent 2013 starts on April 16 on ITV, and it sounds like this year there's set to be more variety than ever.

Wannabes on this year's show include a dancing raccoon and one act that brought back memories for Simon Cowell, but no comics, according to BGT hosts And and Dec.

They teased last month: “We had these guys on a trampoline and we thought Simon is gonna buzz this straight off. There were no buzzers.

“And he turns and says I just love trampolining. I used to go every Saturday. The image of Cowell bouncing up and down.”
