Giant hamster auditions for BGT
Unusual contestants on 'Britain's Got Talent' this year include a man dressed up as a giant hamster and a man who sings while dressed up as a pig in a naval costume
A man dressed up as a giant hamster has auditioned for 'Britain's Got Talent'.
Cameraman Stuart Kettell - whose stage name is The Mad Fool - has tried out for the talent search show with an act which includes him pulling on a hamster suit and running in a giant wheel and he explained he would love to win the show for the chance to perform his unique act for the queen.
He said: "I would like to think the queen would like to see a giant hamster running across her stage one day."
Judge Amanda Holden has revealed she and her fellow panellists David Hasselhoff and Michael McIntyre are putting through some ridiculous acts on purpose in order to annoy Simon Cowell when he returns for the live shows.
She said: "I can't wait to see Simon - and I especially can't wait to see his face when he sees some of the acts we've put through."
Some unusual contestants this year include architect Gary Craig - who calls himself Geordie Pantsman - whose act comprises of him putting on as many pairs of underwear as he can and 'Sailor Pig' Andrew Evans who sings while dressed up as a pig in a naval costume.
