Lenny Henry ‘Britain’s Got Talent doesn’t favour comedians’

Lenny Henry

TV comic Lenny Henry has hit out at Britain’s Got Talent judges, for not encouraging the comedians who audition for the show.

Recently separated Henry, 51, who shot to fame after he won ITV’s New Faces in 1976, told the audience at an awards show:

“It is a freak show.

“If you’re a speciality act or a singer with a great story then fine, but comedians are too ordinary. Simon Cowell will just go: ‘This is comedy. I’ve seen it.’”
