Labrinth's brother auditions on BGT

Britain's Got Talent bosses have denied that a DJ was given any advantage on the show because his brother is Labrinth.

The Sun said that DJ/drummer Joshua McKenzie, whose stage name is MckNasty, is the older brother of Labrinth, who is signed to Simon Cowell's music label Syco.

MckNasty has played at Glastonbury and toured with Tinie Tempah, Lady Gaga and Wretch 32 and told how he wants to be recognised on his own merits, saying: "I'm always at the back and I want to be at the front. My brother is Labrinth... I like the fact that I have to chase him."

The Sun said that Simon asked the DJ "tell me something interesting about you" at the auditions at the London Palladium on Monday.

A BGT spokesman said: "To claim that he has been given any advantage is ridiculous and totally untrue. He wowed the audience and went through on his own merits."
