Amanda Holden has plunged the latest series of Britain's Got Talent into chaos, by 'breaking the rules' to hit the Golden Buzzer for a second time, as colleague Simon Cowell looked on in a state of shock.

Amanda was the first of the BGT panel to hit the Buzzer this year, with her sending singer Sydnie Christmas way back in show one, as some viewers condemned her decision, given Sydnie's already established career in musicals, that has seen her perform in the likes of Grease and Starlight Express.

By the end of last week, all of the judges and Britain's Got Talent hosts Ant and Dec had pressed the Buzzer to send a variety of acts straight through to the upcoming live semi finals, as other hopefuls have missed out on that opportunity, much to the frustration of many viewers.

Now that should have meant that the Golden Buzzer was 'off limits' for the rest of the auditions, but Amanda had other ideas, thanks to a performance from impressionist Nabe. Before performing for Amanda and her ITV co-stars, Nabe explained he'd come all the way from Japan to try out for the show, before adding: "I want to make people smile all over the world," when asked by Amanda why he decided to audition.

He then launched into a zany routine, which saw him use his hair and a few props to transform into a number of characters including Snoopy, Teletubbies, Shaun the Sheep and even Simon Cowell's chest chair. As the audience inside the London Palladium got right on board with Nabe's audition, the judges rose to their free, with Amanda reaching over to hit the Golden Buzzer.

And, as gold confetti fell onto the stage, her move sent Nabe through to the live shows. Picking up on Simon' shocked reaction, Amanda told him: "I'm so sorry," before he replied: "That's a good one."
