Britain’s Got Talent hopeful Alice Fredenham has hit out at The Voice for using her as a ‘pawn’ in the show’s ongoing battle for Saturday night supremacy.
The 29-year-old was seen overcoming nerves to wow the BGT judges on the first auditions show of the series last month – then appearing confident in The Voice’s blind auditions the following week.
But as she waits to learn whether she has made the live finals of the ITV show on Sunday night, Alice has revealed that she feels she has been ‘stitched up’ – saying her audition on The Voice was edited to make it appear that her BGT nerves were fake.
“I was upset when The Voice showed my blind audition because I did feel a bit like a pawn between two shows,” she told The Sun.
“I can see why people might think my nerves on Britain’s Got Talent were tactical and if I was watching as a viewer I might think that too.
“But I was completely honest in both auditions, and it’s a case of how you are portrayed — what happens in the editing suite is up to the show.”
“After The Voice aired lots of people said I’d totally changed and that I was a fake, which hurt,” Alice admitted. “At The Voice I started to get distressed. One of the producers had to take me to one side to calm me down.
“I fell to pieces. I did freak out and wanted to clam up.”
Alice was eventually rejected from The Voice – despite Danny O’Donoghue admitting she was ‘smoking hot’ during her sultry rendition of The Lady Is A Tramp.
