Britain's Got Talent star accused of copying routine from double act

By Lucy Mapstone

A Britain's Got Talent act that impressed all four judges has denied claims he copied his routine from another set of performers.

Comedian Adam Keeler was given four "yes" votes during Saturday night's series opener with his crowd-pleasing sketch, which saw him hold up giant letters and other props to match a medley of popular songs.

However, following the broadcast, watched by 8.7 million viewers, veteran comedy act Raymond and Mr Timpkins took to Twitter to accuse Keeler for "blatantly" copying them, as they are known for a similar routine.

Keeler said in a statement that he has not ever seen their act and that he was inspired by comedian Tim Vine, not the duo.
