In case you missed it, last night, the angry violist (and we thought classical music was supposed to be calming?) chucked a load of eggs at Simon during the BGT live final.
However, since the incident, Natalie Holt, 30, has come forward and apologised for chucking the eggs which not only got yolk over Simon Cowell but interrupted poor old Adam and Richard Johnson’s performance.
In a statement released by the show she said: “I want to apologise to Richard and Adam for overshadowing their performance.
I’ve never done anything like this before and in hindsight I have realised it was a silly thing to do.”
Amanda Holden has since labelled the viola player a ‘stupid cow’ for spoiling (or in many minds, making) last night’s final.
It’s believed Natalie chucked the eggs after her string quartet, Ravens Quartet auditioned for the show last year and didn’t get through however, her band mates insist they had no idea of her plans.
A tweet from the group feed read: “Just to clarify…. The other 3 of us were working elsewhere today and found out when you did.”
Now the incident has had some more cynical eyebrows raising, claiming that the whole thing wasn’t even genuine and was staged by Simon Cowell.
Well, if it was then it was clearly a clever move as it certainly has got us all talking!
A spokesman for BGT has said of the incident: “During tonight’s show an incident took place during the finale of Richard and Adam’s performance.”
“Natalie Holt (age 30) was part of the backing group for their performance and as a result of her misguided actions the police were called. However, we have decided to take no further action at this stage.”
However, Simon Cowell declined to press charges. At the end of the show he chirped: “I would say that Britain’s Got Talent has got the Eggs-Factor.”
Very fast response to a totally unexpected incident we must say…
