While a fifth teased: ‘That blonde woman with Nile Rogers, I thought it was Denise Welch up there singing for a second’.   

While fans were bowled over by Ellie’s rendition of Sting’s 1993, taking to the stage in a flowing gold cape.

Elsewhere in the show Simon Cowell‘s left TV viewers distracted by his incredibly smooth visage, that may be the result of cosmetic surgery, with one asking: ‘What’s he done to himself?’.

Simon was introducing BGT winner Axel Blake, however things didn’t go to plan when the X Factor judge accidentally broke the golden buzzer off it’s stand in an awkward blunder.

The record producer had previously sparked concern by his appearance and taking to Twitter one viewer wrote: ‘Just saw Simon Cowell on the Royal Variety show, what has he done to himself? He looks really gruesome’.

While another added: ‘WTF have you done to your face lad?’ and a third added: ‘Simon Cowell needs to stop having facelifts!’.

Agreeing a fourth commented: ‘Flicked over during halftime of the football and was that Simon Cowell of George Michael ordered from Wish on stage’.

Another said: ‘Simon Cowell’s had a “little work” done’ and on more joked: ‘What on earth happened to Simon Cowell?’. 

Simon’s awkward on-stage blunder occurred when he hit the buzzer ahead of comedian’s Axel’s performance.

The button broke off from the stand into his hands, leaving the star holding it close to his chest.

Simon shrugged at host Lee Mack who laughed awkwardly before carrying on with the show.
