The semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent continued with tonight’s show but things were a little bit more chaotic with the judges and presenters from the get-go.
Following Angels Inc’s first performance the judges’ bickering prompted Ant to joke “it was one of those nights”.
The presenters returned from a television break and Dec had seemingly had enough of the jokes and jibes from the show.
In response to another tease from his co-host, ITV host Dec suddenly declared: “Shut up, it’s none of your business, I hate you!”
Dec ran off the stage, leaving Ant all alone to helm the programme.
“He’s actually stormed off,” a red-faced Ant joked with a laugh.
Things turned fiery earlier when Ant couldn’t resist joking around and tried to distract his best friend of over 25 years.
Ant kept bringing up the unexpected topic of “beekeeping” but Dec was simply trying to introduce the act KNE to the stage.
Ant teased his co-host by trying to guess who the next act would be, prompting irritation from the presenter.
“No I wasn’t asking, it was a rhetorical question,” Dec said firmly.
“It’s KNE,” he then announced proudly, but Ant couldn’t resist butting in yet again.
“Beekeeping!” he blurted out.
“Shut up!” Dec finally demanded.
Dec also took the opportunity to take a swipe at children’s books’ author David Walliams tonight.
“What was that big wooden ugly prop he used at the beginning to get to the finals?” the presenter said.
“David Walliams,” Ant answered promptly.
“That’s the one,” Dec smirked.
During today’s programme, comedian Kojo Anim performed a second time, Chelsea Pensioner Colin Thackery sang a poignant tribute to his late wife, and and viewers were in stitchers over John Archer’s hilarious magic trick.
But who will go through to the final this weekend?
Britain’s Got Talent continues it semi-finals tomorrow at 7.30pm on ITV.
