Amanda Holden 'had words' with parents of eight-year-old comedian who called her a dog during BGT set
Amanda Holden "had words" with the parents of an eight-year-old comedian for calling her a dog during his set on Britain's Got Talent.
The mother-of-three has been part of the show since its debut in 2007 and is one of the most popular personalities on the programme.
She may have nearly seen it all during her 10 years on the show, but she said a jibe made at her expense wasn't age appropriate for the child making the joke.
Ned Woodman delivered a well-received stand-up performance for his audition, when he made the joke, "Why were people so excited by that talking dog on Britain's Got Talent? Amanda Holden's been on it for years."
Ned's father, who is a writer on BBC sitcom Not Going Out, reportedly wrote the joke.
"I have got a sense of humour, but I think he should temper his act to his age," she told The Sun.
"I had words with his parents on the day. I don't think any parent would let their child say that."
Singer and fellow judge Alesha Dixon said she was "surprised" at the joke, adding: "What made him so shocking was it was this young person delivering quite adult jokes."
