Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell has insisted the show did not "set out to fool anybody" after hundreds of people complained when they found out that the show's winner used a stunt double dog.
The disclosure that a lookalike dog was used by Jules O'Dwyer to walk the parallel ropes led to 507 complaints to date to Ofcom and another 130 directly to ITV.
Speaking tonight at a charity event for 'Together For Short Lives' which helps terminally ill children, Cowell said the "confusion" of a live show was to blame for the mix up.
No-one set out to fool anybody, the second dog actually had his collar with his name on. I think now the dust has settled a bit we can accept that she won.
