An outraged Alesha Dixon was forced to defend herself after a “vicious” Britain’s Got Talent act accused her of having botox.

Comedian Jack Carroll made the comment while appearing on BGT: The Champions, six years after he first took part on the talent show as a 14-year-old.

The now 20-year-old joked while performing: “Six years since I was on the show, I look six years older, it's funny because Alesha and Amanda look ten years younger.

“I'm sure they would frown at that joke but the Botox won't allow it.”

Talk about pulling no punches. Defending her own honour, an outraged Dixon shouted back: “I've never had it.”

Meanwhile fellow judge Amanda Holden, who has openly admitted to using the treatment, remained quiet.

As Carroll left the stage, Dixon complained to Holden: “I don’t remember him being so vicious the last time."

Amanda responded: "I know. I love it."

Actor and comedian Carroll was born 11 weeks premature and has cerebral palsy. He first took part on BGT in 2013, wowing the judges with his cheeky sense of humour.

He made it all the way to the final of the series, where he finished runner up to Hungarian theatre group Attraction.

However, he used his success on the show to springboard into comedy and acting. To date he has appeared in sitcoms Big School and Trollied, as well as performing a more serious role in day in daytime soap Doctors.

He also appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019, performing his show Jack Carroll and Friends.
