Britain's Got Talent's Simon Cowell

Vocal coach Yvie Burnett has revealed she is not upset at being dropped from 'Britain's Got Talent' because her role wasn't a priority

Yvie Burnett doesn't care about being axed from 'Britain's Got Talent' because her role wasn't significant.

The voice coach - who helped make a star of 2009 runner-up Susan Boyle by working on her 'I Dreamed A Dream' debut album - was dropped from the ITV1 show as part of changes to the format, but Yvie insists there are no hard feelings towards show boss Simon Cowell.

She told the Daily Record newspaper: "I'm fine. It wasn't a big role I played on 'Britain's Got Talent' and I was never on screen because it's not all about the singers.

"I'm in Los Angeles working on once of Simon's singers, Jackie Evancho, so there's no drama. I haven't been banished. I'm busy being a vocal coach. Not doing one show isn't going to change that."

Yvie was sacked from her role on 'The X Factor' last year only to be quickly reinstated amid difficulties with the new vocal coaches, and a friend recently revealed she hopes the singing expert will remain on the show this year.

A friend said: "Hopefully they'll keep her for 'The X Factor' as she loves working with Simon Cowell."
