Ah, Friday afternoons don’t get any better than this!
The mantabulous Stephen Mulhern is on the blower and wants to talk about last weekend’s stomper of a show.
The telly-tastic BGMT host lifts the lid on why he thinks Mr Zip is en route to global success as well as revealing all about the ridiculously exciting twitter takeover he’s staging tomorrow evening over @GotTalent.
What did you make of Mr Zip?
I loved Mr Zip. I think he could be the first novelty act off BGT to land a number one single. Mark my words, that song will smash it this summer. I can see people dancing around their barbeques to it. If he reaches the Live Shows, I can’t wait to see what he’ll rap about next time.
Just how cute is Pudsey?
Pudsey surprised me. When I met him backstage he seemed too cuddly to be competitive. How wrong was I! Ashleigh and Pudsey were brilliant, weren’t they?
Did you enjoy Chelsea’s audition?
Yes, she was so scared before going on stage. If she gets through to the Live Shows, she needs to realise those nerves will be tripled. I hope she gained some confidence upon watching herself back. It was a brave song choice and she nailed it.
You got on well with her gran, didn’t you?
Yes, she’s one glamorous granny! She likes ‘big hair’ so I asked her for hairdressing tips. Apparently, it’s all about backcombing and hairspray.
Which Judge dresses the best?
Alesha! She always looks amazing and had a model figure. ‘Leash takes the longest to get ready. And did you know that David always changes his shirt between auditions? He always packs two of the same shirt wherever he goes.
What’s your fave thing about BGMT?
The exclusives! We’re always overhearing all the gossip between the Judges when they think their microphones are turned off! We’ll be showing loads of these secret conversations throughout the series.
Anything you can reveal about tomorrow’s episode of BGMT?
It'll be naughty but nice. We’ve got a fella who Simon thinks can’t rap, a lollipop man and lots of exclusive, behind-the-scenes-gossip. BGMT is perfect to watch as you’re getting ready to go out. You can kick back with a few drinks and have a laugh with your mates. The post-watershed slot also means we can get away with more! I’ll also be taking over the official @GotTalent twitter stream tomorrow night at 7.30 pm for half an hour. I can’t wait to interact with all the BGT fans, it’ll be fun!
