She then went on air to speak about the uproar from the weekend, after the latest episode of Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions.

Fans were shocked to see returning winner Paul Potts get axed from the competition, taking to social media to declare their outrage.

But Amanda asserted that she agrees with the consensus – and that the decision was in the hands of the studio audience who were representing the public.

‘I was stunned by the voting, as I said on Saturday. He is our first ever Britain’s Got Talent champion, he is an absolute trooper, a gorgeous man, very talented.

‘But then you can never argue with people who are voting… if I say I thought [the decision] was terrible, I’m thinking that I’m obviously denying [them their voice].

‘There are 250 people in the audience that have the opportunity to vote, there are 10,000 actually watching the show at Wembley, but 250 people producers picked to represent the public.

‘He had nothing to be disappointed about – he was absolutely brilliant, he brought the house down and I’m stunned he didn’t go through.’

Paul has since denied ‘sulking’ after his elimination from that show, and said he blames himself for his performance.

Speaking out: Paul Potts, 48, has denied ‘sulking’ after his elimination from Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions and said he blames himself for his performance 

The singer, 48, received a standing ovation after his performance but was sent home and tweeted that he can ‘pick out every error’ from his shows.

Sharing a still from his BGT audition, Paul wrote: ‘To those who thought I was sulking – that’s what I look like most of the time lol. I can prove it with this still from the original audition: I don’t do fake smiles, but it doesn’t mean I am grumpy, sulky or feeling entitled.’

In another tweet, he said: ‘Hmmmm perhaps my words should be read a little more carefully. I blamed myself. I self analyse after every performance and I can pick out every error. 

‘My job is to do everything I can to avoid slipping up due to these things including technical issues.’

Eliminated: The singer was given the boot on Saturday night's episode of the series which sees former winners and memorable acts compete to be crowned the ultimate winner

The judges were all surprised at Paul’s elimination – with Simon Cowell telling the singer he had a shaky start to his performance. 

He said: ‘I’m going to be honest with you Paul, I thought you started shaky and then halfway through the song it took me back to your first audition, which was you realising if you don’t hit the big notes it’s over.

‘And that’s what happened Paul, you hit the big note when it mattered. What I admire about you is you didn’t need to be here tonight and the fact that you care is why you are a champion and always will be a champion.’

The Opera star later tweeted in response to a fan who defended him against criticism from twitter trolls who said that ‘jealousy is poison’.

Paul wrote: ‘I think it’s called tall poppy syndrome. The show is more about celebrating success than a competition. Extremely proud that 12 years on I’m just as busy as ever doing what I love. 

‘I count myself very fortunate but I also work as hard as I can. Talent + luck + work = a chance of success.’

The Mirror reported Paul blamed producers in a tweet that appears to have since been deleted, writing: ‘Was little frustrated with myself as after 15 run throughs.

Looking ahead: Paul remained positive after his elimination from the series and tweeted he would love to return to Britain's Got Talent again

‘Production gave me a change of camera direction on my way to the stage &it left me looking for the camera that came from different direction.’

Meanwhile, Amanda is doing a skydive next week to raise money for Global’s Make Some Noise – and she announced that her mother Judy, 69, will also be jumping out of the plane alongside her.

Judy called in to the show to talk about it on Monday. 

‘I’m gonna bring two pairs of knickers for us for after we do the dive, just in case anything gets a bit…’ she said. ‘And I want to choose the best man to go down with. : I want first dibs. It might be my last chance!’
