Britain's Got Talent fans were up in arms that their favourite show was forced to face setbacks as a result of Liverpool lifting the FA Cup trophy on Saturday (May 14).

While the show did go eventually, it didn't go unnoticed by those watching at home that the programme had not kicked off at it's allotted time slot of 8pm.

With Liverpool's win dominating screens, BGT fans were left disappointed that their beloved programme was five minutes delayed.

Viewers in their masses took to the social media platform Twitter to fume about the situation.

One confused person penned: "My telly says #BGT is on. But it’s football? Can it just go away now."

Another fumed: "Ok you’re cutting into my #BGT time #FACupFinal. I’ve already eaten 2 burgers."

A third said: "BritainsGotTalent going up late presumably so incomprehensible football managers can ramble to boy reporters @ITV."

While a fourth raged: "F*** THE FA CUP I WANT BGT 🙁 #BritainsGotTalent #BGT."

Meanwhile, fans were not disappointed when a real life "action man" appeared on the programme.

Tulga demonstrated jaw-dropping strength as he appeared on the stage while carrying an enormous and lengthy piece of wood.

Things certainly heated up when crew appeared on the stage to ignite the large plank that took up most of the stage.

As the huge item began to burn, even the judges could feel the warmth from the flames as judge Alesha Dixon comments: "Wow, you can feel the heat from here."
