Britain's Got Talent was flooded with the same complaint as it returned for another episode of auditions on Saturday night. The audience was treated to a true variety of acts, from Batman singing opera to Simon Cowell's dogs barking along to a keyboard performance.

But while the acts were entertaining, viewers at home all had the same criticism. They were taken aback by the noise of the audience in the crowd on the ITV show.

Some said they couldn't even hear the acts performing over the sound of the cheering from the seats behind judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli.

One viewer raged on X, formerly Twitter: "What a crock of televisual s**** that is # BGT. Every act seemingly applauded till people's hands are falling off. Sound production SO bad that the cheering audience drowns out the acts.."

A second said: "Don't want to hear or see the audience till the act has finished. I'm hard of hearing and all i can hear is shouting #BGT." A third commented: "The audience cheering is out of sync with their bemused faces looking like Wtf is going on.... #bgt."

"Have they added extra audience sounds to this??? Cause some sounds sound soooooo fake," another viewer asked, while another added: "This audience literally goes wild dor anything. It cracks me up."

Another viewer added on BGT's official Instagram page: "I love BGT but wow, the audience is loud. I don't know if this year it's done on purpose or if there was a problem with the sound execution but we can barely hear the acts. The beatboxers I couldnt hear a single thing which is a bummer since I love beatboxing acts. "

Speaking about the show, host Declan Donnelly revealed: "One of the joys of doing Britain's Got Talent is that you never quite know what's coming next, and that's why we love doing it.

"Even in our 17th series, we have had stuff that we've never seen before. We've certainly not had an extreme pogo stick act before, alongside several other acts that are still surprising us after all these years."
