BGT 2024 viewers left feeling ‘sick’ over burping performance as Ofcom receives complaints


| Updated:

BGT 2024 returned to our screens last weekend and it’s already sparked some Ofcom complaints.

One contestant’s talent left the judges utterly gobsmacked last Saturday (April 20). The judges met Kimberly Winter, who said she has always wanted to perform in front of Simon Cowell.

Standing in front of the microphone, it appeared at first that Kimberly was going to belt out ABBA’s hit The Winner Takes It All.

However, she left the audience and the judges with their jaws on the ground as she burped the song out instead.

Alesha Dixon ended up pressing her red buzzer as Bruno Tonioli got up out of his seat, looking completely horrified.

The act did seem to win over Amanda Holden eventually though. After the performance ended, Amanda shared her own burps into the microphone and told Kimberly: “It takes a lot of [burp] effort. I’m going to say yes.”

Simon also seemed impressed by the end of it, asking Kimberly: “Did you really fly from America to burp at me?”

Kimberly replied: “Yes Simon,” as Simon said: “It was so stupid it was brilliant.” Simon’s son Eric then ran up on stage and burped into the microphone leaving Kimberly shocked!

Remarkably, Kimberly made it through to the next round as Bruno also changed his ‘no’ to a ‘yes’ to see how she would perform in the next round.

According to TV watchdog Ofcom, 54 people complained over the performance.

Many viewers were far from impressed, and complained on X. One person said: “Nah that burping made me feel sick.”

Another wrote: “All that burping is actually making me feel sick.”

A third said: “Get her off, making me feel sick…”

A fourth added: “What the actual [bleep]? Make it stop.”

Meanwhile, someone else complained: “Was quite enjoying #BGT then all the burping happened, no need to see that. Vile>”
