Britain’s Got Talent 2013: Viola player Natalie Holt eggs Simon Cowell (VIDEO)

It’s all kicking off tonight on Britain’s Got Talent!

Simon Cowell thought he had to be worried about David Walliams antics on the live show, but after most of the performances had taken place and David had more or less behaved himself, the drama came from another quarter altogether.

As we reported earlier, as singing siblings Richard and Adam performed The Impossible Dream, as they attempted to scoop the £250,000 prize money at the end of the final, one of their band joined them at the front of the stage and began to pelt Simon Cowell with eggs.

Viola player Natalie Holt left her seat and threw a number of eggs at the judges, before she was whisked away by security, allowing the performers to continue their song.

Natalie normally performs as part of the The Raven Quartet, however they weren’t on stage with her tonight. While she hasn’t tweeted about the incident yet, they have and the string quartet posted on Twitter saying:

“So. Any ideas who this #eggwoman is from the #bgtfinal? We’ve got a good idea….”

They added:

“We were as surprised as all of you.”

“Just to clarify…. The other 3 of us were working elsewhere today and found out when you did.”

It’s been reported that Natalie has played at a number of high profile events previously, including The Olympics. We imagine she’ll find it hard to gain access to venues like that again.

We have no idea as yet why Holt felt the need to pelt the judges, but he last tweet was made in december 2012 and expressed an extreme dislike for Piers Morgan, so perhaps it was because of his connection to the show.

What do you think of it all viewers? Leave your comments below…..

    yes but shes ruined someones chances of winning something … inexcusable

    why couldn’t she have done it after the act? no one get hurt?

    If anything she helped them get more votes. It was definitely my favourite performance

    Disgraceful? Perhaps. Immature? Undoubtably. Stupid act? Yeah. Ruined her career? Of course. Is a member of the orchestra getting up mid-performances and throwing eggs at Simon Cowell live on prime time funny? HELL YEAH!

    controversial, it took away the fact it was a serious act an no one focuses on the act just some idiot who deserves no good.

    Think about it what’s more likely.

    1. People saw that and voted for them, feeling sorry for them.

    2. Or people went “Well they were my favourite, but that egg throwing put me right off, I’m voting for someone else.

    If the incident hadn’t have happened they would have already been forgotten about.

    As it happens they’re enjoying a bit more exposure.

    they said they were disappointed with what happened so clearly they didnt want this and say what you will this petit lady is an idiot and by arguing for her you;ve proved you to are an idiot to

  8. Justin on June 10, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    I’m not sure what her being small has to do with it…

    Name calling? Disgraceful!
