Talent pool 'good, bad and crazy'

Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon has promised viewers some "wonderful bad acts" in this year's series.

The star, who sits on the judging panel with David Walliams, Amanda Holden and show supremo Simon Cowell, said the foursome were like a "dysfunctional family" with her as a "strict older sister".

She said: "It's the best show to work on, we really do laugh from start to finish."

Dixon, who also did a stint as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing, said there would be plenty of "eccentric" acts appearing in the series.

She said: "We like to see the crazy people, that's what makes the show.

"The auditions were great, we saw some great acts and some wonderful bad acts as you'd expect from Britain's Got Talent."

Cowell has already admitted he fears he has let Walliams spiral out of control on the show.

The pair have a long-running jokey partnership as judges on the ITV talent show.

Walliams was not attending today's Britain's Got Talent launch as he is reportedly away on holiday with his family.

It was reported last month that he and his model wife Lara Stone have broken up b ut neither Walliams nor Stone's representatives have confirmed this.

The couple married in 2010 and had their first child together - a boy called Alfred - in May 2013.

Britain's Got Talent returns on Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
