The British Got Talent returned to the television screens tonight with a hopeful queue showing their skills to this year's jury.
And while viewers seemed to like the first episode of this year's series, a controversial decision left a lot of fans in the mouth.
Stand-up comedian Kojo Anim appeared in the series and it turned out that Judge Alesha Dixon was a good friend of his. She revealed that they had known each other for years and that they were good friends, although she seemed shocked to see him on stage.

Some viewers rushed to social media to complain that Kojo, which has nearly 60,000 followers on Twitter, is already a professional.
"So now, BGT seems to be more talking about professional acts.This is not what it is for me." And Kojo was really not funny, said one viewer.
A second tweet: "I saw #kojo in concert and he is an extraordinary comedian but very talented, but this set was definitely average.This is the first time I see @BGT rigged before my eyes!"
Some other fans have suggested to Kojo to receive only the golden ring as a friend of Alesha.
"There is no doubt that the comedian Kojo was a great actor but to give him the gold is questionable, feel that the only reason he went to him was that he was friends with Alesha."
But it's actually Simon Cowell who put the golden ringtone to the actor shouting: "I do not really like the actors in this show … but I love you". Online fans, however, seemed to feel quite different.
#bgt Kojo is a nice guy, but certainly not a comedian, it's certainly not worth the golden ringtone: tell him he was Alicia's mate

What do you think? Was it hilarious or was it clearly rigged?
