The TV personality, 51, who serves as a judge on the ITV show, took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday to re-post a snap of an empty crowd at the London Palladium.

Another snap of the stage door had been shared along with the text, ‘We have arrived! Day 2 of #BGT Auditions, here we come!’
It comes after Britain’s Got Talent unveiled their judging line-up on Tuesday as the show kicked off for another year – with Bruno Tonioli officially joining Alesha Dixon, Amanda and Simon Cowell on the panel.
Bruno, 67, said: ‘Here we are, Britain’s Got Talent. I am so excited. It’s my first show, I have no idea what’s going to happen, but I’m sure it’s going to be brilliant.’

And it appears the newest judge, who is being paid a whopping £850,000, is already making trouble, according to the warm-up act Adam Khan.
They said Bruno had pressed the Golden Buzzer, but had done it early to avoid being beaten to the chase by Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon, and so had pressed it during the act.
As a result, the moment had to be recorded all over again so that the cameras could be set up properly.
Adam tweeted: ‘So… I just witnessed #BGT history!!! An act came on… it was pretty clear Alesha and Simon both wanted to press the#GoldenBuzzer…

‘So Bruno beat them to it and pressed it *during the act*! They were performing with confetti falling on them and the BGT theme playing in the back!’
‘We now have to re-record the #GoldenBuzzer moment because no cameras were properly in place as nobody expected it to happen during the act.’
Inside the auditions, Ant and Dec introduced the four judges to the stage as they walked out to Survivor’s Eye Of The Tiger.
Jesting that Simon has ‘teased’ him with the job for years, one fan filmed from the audience as Bruno told the audience: ‘Thank you very, very much. I am thrilled to be here.
Turning to Amanda and Alesha, he continued: ‘Look at these girls, they are stunning. And my old friend Simon, what an honour it is to finally work with you, he’s teased me with this for years, years and years and years.
‘Honestly, I am thrilled to be here. Emotional, and very, very nervous.’
While Alesha then shared: ‘Well, do you know what Bruno? I think you should have a go at pressing the buzzer.’
The judges and audience then counted him down as the pro pushed on the buzzer, with Alesha adding: ‘Welcome to the show’, before he thanked his fellow panel and gave them each a hug.
Oh dear! They said Bruno had pressed the Golden Buzzer, but had done it early to avoid being beaten to the chase by Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon, and so had pressed it during the act
