Lewis Capaldi revealed he was turned down for Britain’s Got Talent before becoming the biggest selling artist in the UK – and he had a bone to pick with Amanda Holden.
The 23-year-old – who was forced to stop a recent performance as a brawl broke out at one of his shows this week – awkwardly spilled the tea during Amanda’s Heart FM Radio Show with Jamie Theakston today and, understandably, she was just as shook as you are.
‘I did go on Britain’s Got Talent,’ the Someone You Loved chart-topper began.
‘Amanda, I went on Britain’s Got Talent and I went to the auditions, and I went up and I sang White Blank Page by Mumford & Sons and I went on and they said to me, they said to me Amanda, “Oh Lewis that was so great, that was lovely, we loved that” and I said, “thank you so much for saying that”.
‘And then I got a phone call saying, “Lewis that was great we’re going to put you through, and we’re going to try and hurry it through.” Then I never received another phone call again.’
‘OMG we turned down Lewis Capaldi!’ Amanda gasped.
The singer joked: ‘What they actually said to me, they said to me “Amanda Holden saw your audition tape and she hates you, on a molecular level she despises you.”’
‘Can you imagine,’ the BGT judge pondered, but imagining is all we have – thanks, Amanda.
The actress’s blow comes after she weighed in on the ongoing Phillip Schofield versus his This Morning co-stars saga after it’s been alleged multiple hosts have complained about the 57-year-old.
Amanda famously claimed Phil blocked her from replacing Holly Willoughby while the mum-of-three was presenting I’m A Celebrity and during her radio show yesterday it was clear the bad blood isn’t going anywhere.
Tune in to Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden weekdays from 6.30am – 10am.
