WATCH: Loveable Rogues Reveal The Truth Behind Their Britain's Got Talent Controversy

They were among our favourites in the last series of Britain's Got Talent but the Loveable Rogues also attracted a fair amount of controversy when it was suggested that producers of the show hand-picked them before the live rounds began...

Eddie Brett, Sonny Jay and Té Eugene booked their place in the BGT final after an impressive rendition of their own track 'Lovesick'. Months on and despite not winning the show, Simon Cowell's label Syco granted them a £500,000 record deal, making them the first BGT band to be signed by the big boss.

It wasn't all plain sailing though with reports at the begnning of the year suggesting that the trio were actually encouraged to perform in front of the judges by scouts from the show; leading to claims the programme is a fix.

The band themselved even admitted to skipping several rounds of the audition process with Sonny telling The Sun at the time of the show: "The audition in front of the judges was the first we've done."

It all sounded a bit fishy so Entertainmentwise decided to get to the bottom of things, take a look at what the boys had to say in our video above...
