Britain's Got Talent 2016 bosses rubbish latest 'FIX!' claims

Britain's Got Talent bosses have hit back at claims of a 'fix' that have been levelled at the show over the weekend.

Another Saturday meant another episode of BGT and the Sunday afterwards meant another day of fix accusations.

This week it focused on the fact that a number of acts had already had past experience.

Crossbow act Ben Blaque previously appeared on the America's Got Talent live shows, Ant and Dec's golden buzzer Jasmine Elcock was branded a 'West End star' and dancers Jasmine Elcock were revealed to have made of the final of Got To Dance in 2014.

Now while it's a shame we're seeing less unique acts for the first time, we're also not quite sure how any of those things translate into a 'fix'.

A spokesperson for the show responded to the latest 'fix' stories: "Britain's Got Talent is open to anyone irrespective of their past experience and all acts are auditioned on merit on the day."

Meanwhile a source close to the show rubbished the claims made about 14-year-old Jasmine being a 'West End star'.

"The overwhelming response to Jasmine's performance on BGT has been positive with many people moved by her audition," they said. "As was mentioned on the show Jasmine has previously performed in a theatre production of Annie.

"This was back in 2010 at The Bloomsbury Theatre with her drama group, which she attended once a week.

"She played the part of Annie along with four others and performed three times over a two week period."

So 'West End star' seems to be a bit of a over statement...

Britain's Got Talent continues with more auditions this Saturday night on ITV.
