Britain's Got Talent 2013 egger Natalie Holt is not sorry (but will buy Simon a new shirt!)


Natalie Holt has said she's not sorry for egging Simon Cowell on the final of Britain's Got Talent 2013.

The viola player appeared on stage during Richard and Adam's performance on Saturday night, pelting eggs at the panel.

Musician Natalie had originally said sorry for her actions, but today withdrew that apology to Simon Cowell.

"I planned to do it once the song was finished but I got a bit nervous and went slightly early," she said. “I sincerely apologise for overshadowing their moment as well as to anyone watching who felt that their evening’s entertainment was marred or even ruined.

“However, I am not sorry for pelting Simon Cowell with eggs.

“I think he has too much power and influence in the entertainment industry. I felt that, on behalf of musicians everywhere, this is an institution and a man that needed standing up to.”

But Natalie did offer to buy the music mogul a new shirt after covering his pristine white one with egg yolk at the weekend.

She told the Daily Star: “As an act of goodwill, I would also be happy to offer to pay his dry cleaning bill or buy him a new shirt, maybe with a few more buttons at the top.”

Meanwhile, her boyfriend Chris admitted that she was "overwhelmed" by the response to her stunt.

“She’s a bit overwhelmed and not looking for publicity. She’s trying to make sense of what she did and the reasons why she did it," he told the newspaper.
