Many drew comparisons between Axel and the previous golden buzzer act Loren Allred, who was already a famous singer that had been featured on the soundtrack of The Greatest Showman. 

One person wrote: ‘I refuse to believe that the #BGT Golden Buzzers are real and spontaneous. Yesterday it was to someone who sang an actual song in Greatest Showman and has been in the music charts in the US. Tonight it’s a comedian who has a stand up show on Amazon Prime…’

Another echoed: ‘so last night there was a golden buzzer for a singer with a net worth of 2 million and a song in one of the biggest movies to ever exist and tonight’s golden buzzer was an award winning comedian who has an amazon prime show???? wtf is happening this series #BGT’.

And a third chimed in to say: ‘Apparently that comedian has already got a stand up show on Amazon Prime. Yet another wasted golden buzzer. It’s an absolute fix.’

However, several other fans took to social media to praise Axel for his performance and laud Simon’s decision to use his golden buzzer.  

‘I do love a good comedian, Axel was pretty funny to be fair, had me laughing at every one of his jokes,’ complimented one viewer.

Another agreed, writing: ‘Axel deserved that golden buzzer, quality comedian!’ 

Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
