14 April 2014 2:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell has defended salsa-dancing grandmother Paddy Jones after it emerged that she has already won a Spanish talent show.

However, some fans later complained after it was revealed that Jones had previously emerged triumphant in Spanish television show Tu Si Que Vales in 2009.

Cowell has since taken to Twitter to defend Jones's right to enter Britain's Got Talent, saying: "Don't knock paddy for performing on a Spanish talent show. She is British and wants the chance to perform in front of our royal family."

He added: "She is 80 years old. Let her have that chance. You the viewers will decide."

Cowell also thanked viewers for tuning in for the first episode of Britain's Got Talent, »

Alan Carr has introduced the Britain's Got Talent judges to daggering.

During an interview for Alan Carr: Chatty Man, airing tonight (April 11), Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden witnessed David Walliams being taught the Jamaican dance move by the host.

After volunteering for a demonstration, Walliams quipped: "I'd like to be 'daggered' and then if I enjoy it, maybe I'll 'dagger' you."

He and Carr then attempted the risque actions involved in the dancefloor craze, before the pair fell to the floor amid audience laughter.

"What happened?" asked the Little Britain star, to which Carr responded: "Death by daggering!"
