The second live show of Britain’s Got Talent saw impressionist Ben Nickless win the public vote, as he heads to the next stage alongside runner-up singers Flintz & T4ylor, who were voted for by David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell.

Amber And The Dancing Collies – who were also in the top three – were unfortunately sent home after performing a swashbuckling routine on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes chaos erupted after bawling children were turned away from the Hammersmith Apollo’s doors since the venue was too packed to accommodate them, it has been reported.

According to claims, ticketing company ApplauseStore purposefully allocated an overflow of tickets in case of no-shows.

With the semi-finals being held during the school half-term holidays, parents had the same idea of bringing their little ones along for a treat.

A source told The Sun: ‘There’s been loads of adverts and emails sent out urging people to sign up for the BGT live shows for the semis.

‘But loads and loads of people were left disappointed and it was utter mayhem.

It's a no from us: Meanwhile, 'behind-the-scenes mayhem erupts when crying children were turned away from entering the venue' (pictured R-L, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell in 2022)

‘Some had been down there since 6am hoping to get a glimpse of their favourite acts, but were left gutted when they were told it was full up.’

With ApplauseStore’s small print refusing to guarantee entry to everybody who shows up, ‘crying children’ allegedly filled the street outside the venue.

A spokesman from ApplauseStore said: ‘As is standard practice, tickets are over-allocated to cover for the occasions when people fail to turn up for a free event.

Woohoo! Runner-up singers Flintz & T4ylor, who were voted for by David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell, will also perform again

‘Ticket numbers are carefully considered, and we make it very clear that ticket-holders will not always be guaranteed entry.

‘It’s very rare the audience are ­disappointed, and we’re pleased to have been able to seat over 2,700 ­people to enjoy the show last night.’

TAUT has contacted ITV and ApplauseStore for comment.
