Britain’s Got Talent’s Dave and Finn defended after being branded ‘fix’

Britain's Got Talent's first semi-final heat saw adorable dog act Dave and Finn fly straight through to the final after bagging the most votes from the public.

The sweet police dog and his handler received rave reviews from the judges and the public alike, landing another shot at the winner's trophy.

However, some trolls took to Twitter to claim their act was a "fix," after PC Dave Wardell asked the judges to pick a time, word, number and name at random.

The hero dog act impressed many by correctly guessing everything the judges picked.

But when Dave asked Simon to shorten the name he'd picked from Squidly to Squid, some cynics claimed that Dave's prediction wasn't as accurate as he was making out.

Plus, when Dave asked the judges to pick six letters from a board at random, some critics claimed that Dave simply switched round the pieces of paper when he moved away from the judges.

"The guy fixed the letters.. How can he possibly go through…" one wrote.

While another added: "David and Finn, more like David and Fix ."

The critics were soon shut down by fans of the psychic dog and his handler, though.

One clapped back: "Are people stupid? Of course it’s a ‘fix’ just like all other magic/tricks it’s not real, it’s supposed to be a fix".

While many others simply silenced the hate by gushing over the pair's incredible performance.

" #BGT Finn a true hero that was amazing," another wrote.

Dave and Finn pulled on the judges' heart strings throughout the competition, and Simon Cowell even wept as he heard how police dog Finn was knifed as they pursued an offender.

The service animal was stabbed with a 10-inch blade after he jumped between Dave and an offender wielding a knife.

Finn suffered serious stab wounds to the chest and head but did not let go until reinforcements arrived, and was initially thought unlikely to survive.

Dave then campaigned for Finn’s law, which gives greater legal protection for service animals.

Explaining his reason for going on the show, he said: “There isn’t a bigger stage than Britain’s Got Talent. Dogs like Finn are out there day and night doing incredible work.

"If I can tell Finn’s story, showcase service animals and talk about Finn’s law, I’ve already won."
