Britain's Got Talent DENIES fix claims after viewers claim singing dad's audition was 'fake'
BRITAIN'S Got Talent has denied a singing dad's emotional audition was set up during Saturday's show.
Dad-of-two Nick Edwards teared up in the audience as his mum and young daughters walked out on stage to reveal they'd signed him up to audition for the judges.
Some eagle-eyed viewers questioned the sweet moment's authenticity after spotting a microphone on Nick's shirt.
The show has explained the situation though, with a spokesman saying: "We loved welcoming back our BGT viewers back last night after a year away.
"To report or allude to anything being staged or contrived regarding Nick's audition would be false and incorrect.
"He was totally unsuspecting. We did this so we could mic him up without him suspecting a thing."

Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams were enchanted by Savannah and Cali, aged three and four, when they walked on the stage with their nan, leaving Nick stunned.
As his daughters walked on stage, Nick said: "You're joking. That's my mum, you're joking."
His mum then revealed to the audience: "Well, Nick doesn't know anything about it and we're surprising him because we want him to come and sing because he sings a lovely song for the girls."
However, social media users were sceptical of the moment because of the microphone.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer fumed: "Nearly shed a tear until I remembered how contrived this whole thing was. I won't let this show fool me."
Echoing their comments, someone else said: "When he was sat in the audience, did he not wonder where his mum and kids were? He said they'd come on a day out together? What a joke."
While a third added: "Not staged, apparently. But why did he have a microphone already attached when surprised in the audience? Also luckily had his guitar with him. Make it make sense."
Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturday at 19.35pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
