'Simon Cowell must raise age limit on 'Britain's Got Talent'' says Katie Price
Glamour model and mother-of-three Katie Price has urged Simon Cowell to introduce a new minimum age limit to 'Britain's Got Talent' because she's concerned how the younger contestants will handle the experience and subsequent fame.
Writing in British newspaper The Sun today (May 31), Price explained that celebrity at a young age can be incredibly difficult to handle and she doesn't want to see kids going through such tough judging in the public eye as it's not easy:
"I've been watching 'Britain's Got Talent' this year and I can't help but notice that this is the only show with no age restrictions."
"Britain's children do have talent and I think it's great to see youngsters showcasing their skills. But are they mentally strong enough to handle the ups and downs of acceptance and rejection? Come on, Simon, it's time to lift the age limit as high as your trousers."
The show, which attracted a wave of complaints earlier this week after Jennifer Lopez performed live in a rather revealing outfit (shown below), has produced some well-loved acts including Susan Boyle and tenor Paul Potts since its launch back in 2007.
