'Britain's Got Talent' bosses have banned the audience from booing during auditions.

Crowd members had taken to jeering judge Carmen Electra - who is standing in for regular judge Amanda Holden - but producers are keen to curb it as well as stopping the audience from drinking while the acts are on stage.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "There was a lot of really loud, angry noise directed at Carmen. It was getting difficult for the microphones to pick up what was going on between the judges and the acts. Carmen was clearly getting anxious about it, too.

"The audience was asked to stop shouting for Amanda because it was 'interrupting the show'.

"'BGT' is a family show, so they don't want too much swearing from the crowd or drunken audience members. They also want to cut down on the number of people nipping out to the loos during recording."

Meanwhile, the remaining members of the judging panel - Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon - are convinced they've found the "new Susan Boyle".

The panel were hugely impressed with 17-year-old Jonathan Antoine and Simon said it felt just like when Susan blew the judges away with her audition in 2009.

He whispered to Carmen: "It was like Susan all over again."

If Amanda rushes back to be on a tv show after almost losing her life giving birth to her child, she is lacking brain cells. If she had any class, she would be scolding those unreasonable thinking Brit's about their ill-mannered behavior toward's a Guest on her show. I know that audience does NOT represent Britain in general but they are definitely making Britain appear to be selfish and unintelligent. Why are they hating on Carmen? If an American audience acted like that it would be considered painfully stupid. Are they clueless of the fact that Carmen is a "Guest" judge. She isn't there taking Amanda's job. She is their Guest. Their lack of manners and respect for a Guest on their show makes the British look like mentally deficient people. Acting foolish is self-defeating and significantly counterproductive to the show. Those people are either hopelessly bewildered or just ignorant.
