I am one of those people that say, No, I'm not going to watch BGT this year and then find myself sucked in completely.
This year was no different and I must admit, I was routing for Matisse and Jules O'Dwer to win, along with a lot of the audience.
AND THEY DID.
So imagine my surprise this morning to see that a scandal has broken out over their win when Jules admitted that it wasn't Matisse who walked across the ropes, it was another dog as Matisse is scared of heights.
Does anyone else feel that this is cheating a little? The rope trick was a huge part of their act, and I must admit I had never seen a dog do that before. Social media was alight with everyone commenting how amazing the dog was, (well, some people were threatening to leave the country if "another bloody dog won BGT) but as a viewer, I feel duped.
I think if the winner had been announced as Jules, for her dog training SKILLS, and bloody hell, she has some serious skills, then I wouldn't have an issue with it at all, but the winner, as voted for by the public, was Jules AND Matisse. Is it fair that part of his act was actually done by someone else?
If one of the dance acts had brought in a professional to do a somersault that they couldn't do, would that be acceptable?
I don't think so, so is it ok that this has happened on Britain's Got Talent.
I would LOVE your thoughts on this story.
Let me know.
