Britain's Got Talent returned to our screens tonight, May 18, as acts tried to impress the judges tonight with their unique talents in the 17th series of the show.

The latest round of auditions saw comedians, magicians, singers, dance acts and stunt acts take to the stage all hoping to win a place in the live shows.

However, there was one act that left some viewers wanting to turn over from the ITV show claiming it was 'disgusting'.

ITV viewers 'disgusted' as act throws food over judges

65-year-old opera singer Natalie Choquette wowed with her voice, but it was her twist that left some viewers upset.

The singer invited the judges to the stage for a sit-down dinner but, to Simon Cowell's, Amanda Holdens, Alesha Dixon's and Bruno Tonioli's surprise, the dinner was not calm.

During her performance, Choquette ate spaghetti and meatballs and drank wine but things escalated when she threw the meal on Cowell.

Waiters then came out to pour spaghetti over the other judges but Dixon and Amanda Holden ran off before getting covered.

However, Cowell did not want the female judges to get off the hook that easily and chased them and hosts Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly backstage in an attempt to cover them in bowls of food.

The act ended with judges being covered in a white dusting of cheese from the sky.

While the judges seemed to enjoy the act, viewers at home had mixed reactions, taking to X, formerly Twitter, to share: "Knew there was something and she's just spoilt it."
