Meanwhile, Simon Cowell is reportedly launching an investigation into the use of Jules and Matisse’s stunt dog, after being left “shocked and angry” by the revelation.
Jules has claimed that she did not deliberately deceive viewers, and used another of her dogs, Chase, to perform the stunt as Matisse was afraid of heights.
Amid calls for Jules and Matisse to pull out of the Royal Variety Performance, after winning a slot as part of their prize, ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ producers have apologised over the dog switch.
“The audience had previously seen from Jules’ semi-final routine that she works with a second dog Chase alongside Matisse,” they said.
“We are sorry if this was not made clearer to the judges and viewers at home during their final performance.”
