Screen star Julie Walters has hit out at the makers of TV talent shows, accusing them of exploiting contestants, and at reality shows.
She told the Radio Times: "There's not enough drama being made.
"We've got too many reality shows, but that's probably just a fashion so I'm waiting for things to swing back.
"I also get very angry that vulnerable people appear in the audition stages of TV talent shows.
"I think it's sad that people's real vulnerabilities are being exploited. They simply shouldn't be there."
