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”.
