Britain's Got Talent's Jenny Darren "reprimanded" by show over homophobic YouTube videos

A contestant on Britain’s Got Talent has found herself in trouble after creating a YouTube playlist containing offensive videos.

Rockstar pensioner Jenny Darren impressed the four judges over the weekend with her performance of AC/DC’s ‘Highway to Hell’, but a spokesperson for the show confirmed that bosses made it clear to her that her online behaviour was unacceptable.

According to The Sun, the videos in question contained homophobic and anti-Semitic content. The playlist has since been deleted.

“Any prejudicial language or behaviour is abhorrent to everyone involved in BGT, which is an inclusive show,” a Britain’s Got Talent spokesperson told Digital Spy.

“As a result, Jenny Darren has been reprimanded by producers regarding her previous statements, and has been warned over her future conduct. She has profusely apologised.”

Jenny previously revealed that she came close to fame in the 1970s, as she claims she was actually the first singer to record the hit song ‘Heartbreaker’ before Pat Benatar released it as a single.

“I wasn’t that upset about it at the time, but I’ve been more upset about it since when reality dawns on you,” she told Radio Times.

“When you’re young, you’re doing lots of gigs and things. But of course it’d have made a big difference if I had recorded that as a single, without a doubt.”

Britain’s Got Talent airs on ITV.
