Amanda Holden recalls Britain's Got Talent's most emotional auditions

britains got talent 2016 judges smaller  - 12

Having been on ten years of Britain's Got Talent now, Amanda Holden has seen it all.

The only original judge to have been on every series, Amanda this week has recalled the most totes emosh auditions she's seen over the past decade.

And there's been a LOT to pick from.

"Oh gosh! I cry at things I don’t expect to cry at," Amanda said. "I suppose my top five emotional moments have to be Attraction, I think there were tears and a Truly, Madly, Deeply moment everywhere.

"Then Paul Potts and Connie Talbot [from Series 1] because I was a new mum at the time and was just thinking of Lexi.

"Then Andrew Johnson was a moment I really wept, he was a little boy who had been bullied, he came on and sang, it was his fight back."

In a chat ahead of next week's live shows on ITV, Amanda continued: "Very early on in the show there was the first person we ever described as a Billy Elliot moment, a guy whose father was completely against him being a majorette.

"He danced to Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen and it brought the house down. He was with his gran who had championed him all the way and he went on to do well on the show.

"I think his father accepted him for everything and that was amazing."

Amanda concluded: "That’s why the show is so important because it’s often a show where we put people back together in a really positive way."

Britain's Got Talent continues this Saturday with the last of the auditions while the live semi-finals begin just a day later on Sunday evening.
