Subject: Britain's Got Talent

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/17/15 at 8:49 am

Britain's Got Talent misled viewers over the use of a second dog in the final of the ITV talent show, media watchdog Ofcom has ruled. Jules O'Dwyer and her dog Matisse won the talent show in June, but it was later revealed that another dog, Chase, performed the tightrope walk section. While Ofcom acknowledged ITV did not intend to deceive viewers, it said they were ultimately misled. ITV expressed "sincere regret" about the "unfortunate editorial mistake". It has said it will refund viewers who paid to vote for the winning act, or donate their money to charity.

Overnight viewing figures for Saturday night's episode - the second of this year's series - show that 11 million of us tuned in at its peak. Overall, an average of 9.8 million people watched the episode, giving it a 46% share – almost half the viewing audience. Saturday's instalment of the talent show saw 14-year-old Jack Higgins impress the judges with his ballet display. It's since been reported he is the cousin of another contestant, Beau Dermott - one of this year's favourites.

I watch the clips on YouTube.  I think BGT is the best of all the "Got Talent" shows as it has produced the most talent who have made it.  Plus, Alesha Dixon is gorgeous and I don't mind looking at her at all.

It is the must-see program over here and I am under orders to record it each Saturday for the family to view it.

they've had sword swallowers on before.  I remember when The Hoff was a judge he was criticised for pressing the buzzer just as the man started to swallow the sword.

I only saw this new act on Gogglebox and it made me cringe, but I don't see that there was anything to complain about.
