The 'accidental' internet 'leak' which showed Britain's Got Talent semi-finalists lined up backstage on ITV's official website was lambasted today as a cheap publicity stunt staged by a cynical Simon Cowell in order to bump up the show's ratings.
Following early media frenzy over the likes of Susan Boyle and the pizza delivery guy whose name eludes us, interest in the show has slumped alarmingly as the viewing public have been deluged with crap acts featuring people farting to music, dickheads singing operatic arias in falsetto voices, 75 year old would-be pole dancers, Greek Irish dancers, and nauseatingly sweet child stars.
In essence the show has lost the plot, assuming it ever had one in the first place. Susan Boyle is yesterday's news. Simon Cowell doesn't care as long as the cash rolls in. Britain is totally sick of Britain's Got Talent.
"Who gives a shit?" Cowell told us from his California mansion. "As long as the money rolls in."
More as we get it.
