‘Are you joking? That’s my mum,’ he was heard saying in the audience. 

After some encouragement, a reluctant Nick, 35, made his way to the stage, where he explained he had lost confidence in his singing, and hid his talent.

He told the judges: ‘Hopefully I’ll keep the nerves and crying away while I do this.’ 

After being given time to prepare, the dad performed a moving song dedicated to his daughters, with the performance leaving everyone in tears. 

Nick received four enthusiastic yeses from the judges and advanced to the next round of the competition.   

However, many viewers took to Twitter to accuse the emotional performance of being fake, after they spotted a microphone pinned to his chest while he was in the audience.

One wrote: ‘However cute that is, I don’t believe nick on #BGT he’s already got a mic on, he must have had some idea of something.’

Another echoed: ‘Nick was wearing a microphone while sitting in the audience. He had his song lyrics & guitar. Plus everyone has to go through several auditions before even going on the TV live shows. 100% staged!!’

A third chimed in: ‘It’s so clear to me now that Nick staged the whole thing with a hidden mic!’

However, Britain’s Got Talent have offered an justification for the microphone, explaining that Nick was approached on arrival to be part of the ‘gogglebox’ audience who are all mic’d up to give their live reactions to the acts.

An official spokesperson said: ‘We loved welcoming back our BGT viewers back last night after a year away. To report or allude to anything being staged or contrived regarding Nick’s audition would be false and incorrect. 

‘Quite simply, when Nick entered the Palladium auditorium during BGT auditions, he was approached to be part of our ‘gogglebox’ audience and told he would be mic’d up so we could capture his reactions throughout the day as he sat in the audience.

‘He was totally unsuspecting. We did this so we could mic him up without him suspecting a thing.’
