Amanda Holden breaks major Britain's Got Talent rule

Amanda Holden broke a major ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ rule during recent auditions.

The 52-year-old star took a page out of Bruno Tonioli‘s book by repeating one of his big mistakes from his first spell on the judging panel last year.

As reported by The Sun newspaper’s TVBiz column, Amanda loved an outrageous comedy act in Manchester so much that she hit her Golden Buzzer to send him straight through to the ITV talent show’s semi finals.

However, despite the fact the buzzer is only meant to be used once per judge, she had already hit it for a musical theatre singer during a previous audition.

Her second Golden Buzzer performer caused quite the stir, as the Japanese man did impressions using his hair.

Thankfully, bosses were more relaxed about the rules being bent after Bruno’s cheeky behaviour in 2023.

This time round, there has been some chaos with the buzzers after Simon Cowell, Bruno and Amanda sent three acts through to the lives shows within the first 20 auditions.

A source told the newspaper: “Bruno was almost moved to tears watching his golden buzzer dance act – and was first to slam down on the button so hard that it cracked.

“He was shortly followed by Simon, who sent a Japanese dance act through to the live shows.

“And finally, Amanda was impressed by a female theatre singer that she was keen to give a shot in the live rounds and was last to press the buzzer.”

There could be good news for Amanda and Bruno, after Simon suggested the one buzzer rule may have been scrapped as they look to embrace the madness.

He told the crowd at the London auditions: “I’m very excited, we don’t know who is going to come on and we’ll meet people together.

“This year there’s just one rule: be as naughty as you want.”
