Simon Cowell Under Fire Over Britain's Got Talent 'Fix'
Simon Cowell has been accused of fixing 'Britain's got Talent'.
The music mogul - who returned to the show this year after spending time in the US setting up the country's version of 'x factor' - is believed to have asked Essex band The Loveable Rogues to appear on the show.
According to the Daily Mirror, singer Eddie Brett said: ''We did get approached to do the show. We never really thought about doing shows like this, but obviously an opportunity came along and it would be silly not to.''
A spokesperson for 'BGT' confirmed auditions came in from various ways this year.
The representative said: ''We let people know about auditions in lots of ways, from ads in local papers to fliers distributed at festivals. As part of this normal process, we may inform some acts about the auditions.''
''All acts are auditioned on their own merits and the judges then decide who goes through to the live shows.''
