BGT's ballet dancers Shannon and Peter brush off rubbish 'fix' claims

Shannon and Peter

Britain's Got Talent ballet dancer couple Shannon and Peter have brushed off ridiculous 'fix' claims after their audition at the weekend.

The pair performed on Saturday night's show, impressing the judges and getting four big yeses from the panel.

But they were quickly put into spotlight after it was revealed they had previously made it through to the final of Got To Dance in 2014.

Because apparently that's a bad thing?!

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

Speaking on ITV this morning, the duo said they more than happy with the audition.

"We thought it was an amazing audition and we feel good about it," Shannon said. "We trust each other so much that we get lost in one another when we dance."

Peter added: "We want to show people our story. We've got lots of ideas we want to share - especially with the production side of things.

"It's very exciting and we've got our fingers crossed that we will be able to do that. We just want to make everyone to enjoy ballet."

He told ITV's Lorraine: "It's been 12 years since we hung up our ballet shoes and stopped performing. We both teach now because we love being able to pass on the knowledge we've learn so that we can inspire a new generation to get into ballet."

Britain's Got Talent 2016 continues Saturday nights on ITV with the auditions.
