'Britain's Got Talent' Misled The Public Over Stunt Double Dog, Ofcom Report Says


Britain's Got Talent

ITV is offering a refund to any fans of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ who voted by phone or text for the competition’s winner Jules O’Dwyer and her performing dog Matisse, after Ofcom ruled that a performance involving stunt double dogs was misleading.

The broadcasting regulator determined that the talent show was likely to have inadvertently misled viewers after a lookalike dog was used instead of Matisse to perform a tightrope walking routine during the live final. ITV received 1,175 complaints when the incident was uncovered the week after the final episode at the end of May 2015.

In delivering their report, Ofcom said that ITV broke rule 2.14 of the broadcasting code which states “broadcasters must ensure that viewers and listeners are not materially misled about any broadcast competition or voting.”

Britain's Got Talent Viewers Offered Refunds After Watchdog Ruling


Britain's Got Talent

Jules O'Dwyer and her trained pooches triumphed in the 2015 final in May (15), during which around 4.5 million votes were cast, but many viewers lodged official complaints after she later admitted a stunt double had replaced her dog Matisse for a key part of the performance.

Officials at British watchdog The Office of Communications (Ofcom) launched an investigation after receiving 1,175 complaints, and they have now ruled the debacle breached the broadcasting code.

The ruling states, "We have no reason to believe that there was any intention to deceive viewers that the tightrope walk actually involved a second dog... (But) although the (programme-makers) may not have intended to deceive viewers, the presentation of the act as 'Jules O'Dwyer & Matisse' not only had the potential to mislead, but was likely to have done... In circumstances where viewers are encouraged to participate in a vote, especially when they are invited to pay to do so, licensees have a particular responsibility to ensure that viewers are clear what they are voting for. In this case... as evidenced by numerous complainants to Ofcom - many viewers were not aware that a central part of a dog agility act was performed by a second animal."

Britain's Got Talent Evacuated Over Unexploded Bomb


Britain's Got Talent

Builders came across the device on a site close to Fountain Studios, which also houses The X Factor U.K., in the Wembley area of the British capital, and police ordered an immediate evacuation.

Bomb disposal experts swarmed the scene on Thursday night to work on removing the nine stone (50 kilogram) explosive, which could take up to a week.

Insiders revealed that Britain's Got Talent founder Simon Cowell and TV bosses are now worried the show's live semi-finals, which are due to air in the U.K. on Monday (25May15), could be hit by the removal operation, and they are trying to find an alternate filming location.

Richard And Adam Living The Impossible Dream After Britain's Got Talent


Jahmene Douglas Richard Johnson Britain's Got Talent The X Factor

TV talent show winners haven’t been so successful of late; think The X-Factor’s James Arthur and The Voice’s Leanne Mitchell. But Britain’s Got Talent Winners – Richard and Adam – have topped the U.K album charts following their third-place finish on Britain’s Got Talent.

In doing so, they beat another talent-show product, x factor runner-up Jahmene Douglas, off the top spot. Richard and Adam’s profile was raised somewhat when a woman ran on stage to throw eggs at Simon Cowell for his influence on the music business.

Their album - The Impossible Dream - features hearty renditions of The Power of Love, Unchained Melody, Amazing Grace and Ave Maria. "It's amazing - you've made our Nan extremely happy, so thank you to each and everyone of you who's bought the album," Adam told the Official Charts Company.
