The animal acts are out in force on Britain's Got Talent 2013 tonight, bu fair to impress.
There's everything from donkeys to raccoons, but few are able to live up to last year's champion Pudsey.
“Quite a few animals have auditioned this year, but not a lot of them live up to Pudsey,” BGT co-host Ant admits in this evening's show.
This weekend Patty the painting donkey takes to the stage, but does little to impress Simon.
“I’m slightly disappointed because I actually thought that the donkey was going to do a mountain range,” says Simon at the end of the audition. “My advice is you actually do pay for the donkey to have painting or drawing lessons. That isn’t good enough,” he continues.
Melanie the raccoon also proves a disappointment to Simon. “My suggestion is come back with a cat. No I’m being serious. I want a dancing cat,” he says.
League of Extraordinary Groomers is an act whereby the dogs are groomed with the judges’ and Ant and Dec’s faces on their coats.
“Do you know what? If Amanda Holden had sisters…,” says Simon when he sees the dogs.
“Did my one go wrong or do I have a moustache that I wasn’t aware of?,” says David as he looks at his own face on the side of one dog. “It’s not an act is it?,” he continues.
When Yogi the dog auditions with his owner Jo Butterwich, Simon says, “Probably the worst dog act I’ve ever seen.”
Speaking about what she thinks the worst act of the series has been Alesha says: “Probably the donkey! I love animals but the donkey just stood there and did nothing.
"It was supposed to be an amazing painter but they put the paint brush in the donkey’s mouth and then it spat it out and that’s what created the picture. It was pretty poor. There was also one dog act where I think I said to the owner: 'my dog can do more tricks than that dog.'"
Britain's Got Talent 2013 airs tonight at 7:30PM on ITV.
