He told the : "I like to watch things like

the X Factor but I do find myself watching it on catch up and fast forwarding through the performances.

“I think to myself ‘Why am I watching this programme?’

"That is the bit that kind of bores me a bit.”

“Britain’s Got Talent is a feel-good show – unlike other talent shows which keep telling you how important it is and that you are going to be the biggest star in the world.
