BGT fans outraged at singer’s brutal insult aimed at Stephen Mulhern
Britain’s Got Talent contestant Honey Scott cracked a joke on TV presenter Stephen Mulhern but viewers weren’t impressed
Viewers of Britain’s Got Talent were unimpressed with a singer’s swipe at presenter Stephen Mulhern.
Singer Honey Scott auditioned with just her guitar and cracked a few celebrity jokes while singing her BGT-themed song.
A verse included a jab at Saturday Night Takeaway star Stephen, and his spin-off show was axed.
The 45-year-old also used to host Britain’s Got More Talent on ITV2.
She sang: “Ant and Dec now I feel the pressure, they were always good friends.
“Stephen Mulhern isn’t as good as both of them, that’s why he’s not on ITV2.”
The audience at the time was laughing, along with Ant McPartlin, Declan Donnelly and the judges – including Simon Cowell.
However, viewers at home thought the joke was going a bit too far and took to social media to wonder why she would be singing those lines.
“no!!!!! four buzzers for Honey Scott please how DARE does she insult Stephen Mulhern this show is nothing without him and bgmt,” one user posted.
Another added: ‘Not at all impressed that she goes after Stephen Mulhern in her song.
“To that girl from Essex who was strumming guitar on #BGT : NEVER insult Stephen Mulhern like that. Never,” commented an unimpressed fan.
One social media user said: “I liked his song until the Stephen Mulhern part, it was not necessary! Stephen Mulhern is a legend.”
“I didn’t like that she rejected Stephen but it was a good song,” posted one.
Fans are clearly missing BGMT as they took to Twitter after a few episodes of the singing competition to talk about it.

One person asked: “BGT is disappointing this year because it’s a big deal! What happened to all the funny and terrible auditions? And what happened to Britain’s got more talent? “
Another said: “Totally agree with tonight’s #goldenbuzzer #BGT but it’s episode 3 and still not much variety, where are all the fun acts we all cringe but love watching @BGT” Chris agreed, saying: Bring back all the ffs bad deeds! #BGT”
In 2020, Stephen spoke about the removal of Britain’s Got More Talent from ITV2 after 13 years on screens.
He told Sun Online: “It’s a shame and when it was decided that they weren’t going to do the ITV2 version, I think the consensus among the boys and the judges was that it was about a huge gap.
“We did it from day one, when there were only three judges. Do I think that’s a shame? I do it. We got away with a lot of stuff. »
