BGT's Amanda Holden makes blunder about disabled contestant Eva Abley in awkward live semi final gaffe

BRITAIN'S Got Talent judge Amanda Holden was left red in the face on Sunday night after making a blunder about a disabled contestant.

The TV star was giving her feedback to young comedian Eva Abley after she performed her set during the semi final show.

The third round of semi finals saw the schoolgirl take to London's Hammersmith Apollo to entertain the crowds with a comedy skit.

Eva, 14, had everyone laughing as she poked fun towards head judge Simon Cowell about his use of Botox and his motorbike accident.

Amanda, 51, howled at the jokes – and gave Eva positive feedback as hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly came to the panel.

However, she made an awkward disability blunder after saying that Eva, who has cerebral palsy, has "funny bones".

"Oh my goodness me, every single joke was a banger," Amanda gushed. "You've got funny bones, there's nothing else to say."

Going red and trying to rectify the awkward moment, she continued: "You know what I mean, that wasn't a joke

"You've got it in your blood, you are naturally funny. Every single joke was a winner, darling, and every single moment was funny.

"You are so refreshing, so genuine, you're incredible."

Despite Amanda trying to rectify the mistake, it was still noted by viewers at home who took to social media to react.

"Amanda has had a nightmare there," one wrote, as a second chimed in: "Amanda really does say the wrong things all the time."

"Live TV at its finest… Amanda Holden says to the comedian with cerebral palsy 'you have funny bones, it’s in your blood',” a third said.

While a fourth added: "Did Amanda Holden just tell a girl with cerebral palsy that they have funny bones?"

It comes after Amanda left fans in shock after accusing a semi-final act of ‘deceit’ following death-defying stunt.

The judge questioned escape artist Andrew Basso's act after he disappeared from view during his stunt.

After he emerged from the tank after completing his act unharmed, Amanda stunned fans when she questioned whether what they had been watching was 'deceitful'.

Amanda, who said she was 'disappointed,' by the performance, added: "This evening, because of the darkness, we were left wondering if there was less danger and more deceit going on."
