One wrote: "Ashley ain't holding back but he's totally correct #bgt."

A third added: "Loving the fact Ashley Banjo isn't just being wishy washy like the other 3 judges, constructive criticism is the way forward #BGT."

A fourth agreed: "#BGT so glad Ashley Banjo is on. Refreshing to have a judge that is honest and constructive without being brutal."

"I couldn’t think of a better person to sit in my seat whilst I follow doctor’s orders. I hate that stupid bike.”
