Britain’s Got Talent viewers furious as Paul Potts booted off The Champions 'Rubbish!'

Tonight’s first instalment of Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions saw a number of stars from the Got Talent franchise return to the stage to wow the audience and judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.

Amanda was stunned by Kseniya Simonova from Ukraine who created stories with sand and pressed her Golden Buzzer to send her straight to the final.

It was then up to the audience to decide who would be next to go through and they chose Bello and Annaliese Nock.

Paul Potts appeared shocked not to have been voted through to the final while Amanda had a rather awkward reaction.

She could be heard asking: “What about Paul Potts?”

Viewers agreed with Amanda with many rushing to Twitter to slam the result as “absolute rubbish” unsure of how anyone else could through to the final.

“What absolute rubbish! Boogie Storm are great but over Paul Potts and The Sacred Riana? No way. #BGT,” one commented.

Another added: “Ridiculous how raging I’m getting st this Britain’s got talent champions… what the hell are this audience voting for?? How can you not vote for Paul Potts?? #BGTChampions #bgt.”

A third shared: “I bet #PaulPotts is wondering if he should’ve stayed at home like all the other #BGT winners #BGTTheChampions #BGTChampions.”

“Seriously? No Paul Potts?? Are the audience all 10 years old? #BGTTheChampions #BGT,” someone else tweeted.

Paul omission from the final of Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions came after Simon dished out some rather tough criticism to the singer.

He told him: “’m going to be honest with you Paul, I thought you started shaky and then halfway through the song it took me back to your first audition which was you realising if you don’t hit the big notes its over.

“And that’s what happened Paul, you hit the big note when it mattered.

“What I admire about you is you didn’t need to be here tonight and the fact that you care is why you are a champion and always will be a champion.”

Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to impress those sitting in the audience and Amanda had already used her Golden Buzzer.

Elsewhere on the show, Amanda burst into tears after watching Kseniya’s moving performance.

The Ukrainian star created stories to help cheer up children who have cancer and encourage them to fight against the disease.

She ended her performance with the words “don’t give up,” which left Amanda in tears and struggling to give feedback.

Will Kseniya manage to win the competition in a few weeks time?

Britain’s Got Talent airs Saturday on ITV at 8pm.
