The woman who hurled eggs at Simon Cowell during the final of Britain's Got Talent "acted entirely alone", the other members of her rock string quartet have said.
The Raven Quartet took to Twitter this morning to reiterate that Natalie Holt's actions were never discussed with the group or their manager:
Natalie’s decision to do what she did on Saturday eve was never discussed with the group or our manager; she acted entirely alone. We’d …..
…never condone such a disturbance & think Richard & Adam did a brilliant job of carrying on their performance under the circumstances.
The winners of Britain's Got Talent showed Daybreak some of the secrets behind their mastery of shadow dancing.
Attraction founder Zoltan Scuzs said they had hardly slept since their win on Saturday night:
The leader of shadow dance troupe Attraction - the winner of this year's Britain's Got Talent - has attacked the woman who threw eggs at Simon Cowell during the final.
Zoltan Scuzs told The Sun newspaper that Natalie Holt spoiled the group's big moment when she did something "stupid".
He said: "It was not good. We picked up the papers and there was a big article about this girl throwing eggs and just one line on Attraction.
"What she did was stupid and we are not happy about it".
The woman who threw eggs at Simon Cowell during the final of Britain's Got Talent said she did it in protest against his "dreadful influence" on the music industry.
Viola player Natalie Holt was watched by an audience of more than 13 million people when she ran to the front of the stage on Saturday and hurled the eggs during a performance by Welsh brothers Richard and Adam.
Speaking to The Sun, Holt, who was part of the orchestra for the brothers' song, said, "I took a stand against people miming on television and against Simon and his dreadful influence on the music industry".
Her mother Patricia told the newspaper she "was in shock" when she saw her daughter on television throwing the eggs, but added, “Simon Cowell does monopolise music. Apparently he’d been on Twitter saying he doesn’t like eggs so I think maybe she was reacting to that”.
More than 13 million people watched the Britain's Got Talent live final last night, which saw Simon Cowell get pelted with eggs by a suspected former reject, ITV said today.
The show, won by Hungarian shadow dance troupe Attraction, was watched by a peak audience of 13.1 million, with an average of 11.1 million viewers across the two-and-a-half show, the broadcaster said.
The viewers saw Natalie Holt, 30, a member of Welsh singing brothers Richard and Adam Johnson backing group, rush to the front of the stage during their performance throw eggs at the judges.

It's disappointing that someone tried to sabotage our performance but we're proud that we made it to the end of our song.
Thanks to everyone for their support.
We've had a great time.
ITV confirmed that the woman who threw the egg was 30-year-old Natalie Holt a member of Richard and Adam's backing group.
– Natalie Holt
I want to apologise to Richard and Adam for overshadowing their performance.
I've never done anything like this before and in hindsight I have realised it was a silly thing to do.
– Britain's Got Talent statement
During tonight's show an incident took place during the finale of Richard and Adams performance.
Natalie Holt (age 30) was part of the backing group for their performance and as a result of her misguided actions the police were called.
However, we have decided to take no further action at this stage.
Hungarian shadow dance troupe Attraction were voted the winners of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent tonight, picking up £250,000 and a slot performing at the Royal Variety Performance.
The troupe of shadow dancers have previously been on the German and Hungarian equivalents of BGT, but said they wanted to win this show because this was the biggest programme of its type.
