Amanda Holden admits kids on Britain's Got Talent 2013 can be uncomfortable

Britain's Got Talent 2013 judge Amanda Holden has admitted that she often feels uncomfortable with child performers on the show.

Amanda, the only judge to have appeared in all seven series of the telly show, insisted that parents needed to think about putting their children up for the ITV1 series.

Already this year we've seen young acts on stage, including 14-year-old comic Jack Carrol and 11-year-old singer Arixsander Libantino.

Fortunately both Arixsander and Jack seemed to cope pretty well under the pressure of performing to thousands of people, but not every child can handle it.

Amanda told the Daily Star Sunday this week “I don’t dread commenting on kids – I just think responsibly about how I might say ‘no’.

“We think the responsibility lies with the parent for any child who comes on.”

She added to the newspaper: "Unless your child is ready, it shouldn’t be on stage.”
