'Britain's Got Talent' bosses are determined to do everything they can to reduce the stress level of favourite Paddy Jones, 79
'Britain's Got Talent' bosses are worried the show could prove too much for dancing pensioner Paddy Jones.
The 79-year-old great-grandmother received the first golden buzzer of the series last weekend, which means she's automatically through to the live semi-finals, after she wowed judges with her impressive Salsa moves.
However, with the bookies claiming she's the favourite to win, producers are keen to reduce the level of stress she's under by cutting down her commitments.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "They will work with her to make sure she deals with the pressure of being the early favourite."
Show organisers have also arranged a napping area with a medic on standby and will give her the best time slot during the live semi-finals to suit her needs.
The insider explained: "Despite her energetic performance, Paddy is still a 79 year old and so producers are sensitive to her needs."
Meanwhile, Paddy and her dance partner Nico, who have won a Spanish talent show in the past, are considering performing to an English track in the next round.
Paddy said: "It's down to Nico what we do for the semi-final but he has suggested we do something a little more English -- maybe dance to a pop song so the audience can sing along."
