Britain's Got Talent has got to be one of our TV highlights. Every year we watch in awe as the show presents some of the most unbelievable, wacky and out of this world acts, and we can genuinely say we never know what to expect!
Following the broadcast, Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams wrote on Twitter, praising Raymond and Mr Timpkins for doing it "first & funnier".
Just one episode in, and the show has managed to cause waves by its inclusion of comedy act Adam Keeler, as it has now been angrily claimed that he copied his act from other comedians - and even competition judge David Walliams has had his say...
Raymond and Timpkins, who have been performing on the comedy circuit together for twenty years, were fuming as they watched Britain's Got Talent.
Suggesting they'd been approached to perform the routine on "BGT" several times in the past, they fumed (via The Sun): "Shame on you BGT and Adam Keeler - how clever of you all to put an act on that blatantly copies our set".
He told Chortle: 'I have never seen the Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue act so I can honestly say I've not copied it; only 40 seconds of my audition was shown and I had many other props that weren't letters or signs, my normal act is 30 minutes long so unless people have seen both complete acts I would not know if they are similar'.
"#BGT Is it because we have consistently said "NO" to you??"
'Either BGT have trawled the net to find someone willing to do our act for them in light of our constant refusals or Adam has seen our act, copied it badly and then made a decision to apply.

They added: "Either way, neither comes out of this well".
BGT judge David also joined the debate, posting a link to Raymond and Timpkins work along with: "If you saw @BGT last night & liked the musical comedy act with the sign reading "ME" see @raymondtimpkins live who did it first & funnier". "I was inspired by comedian Tim Vine who also uses props in his comedy", he continued. The Raymond and Mr Tompkins Revue have been invited to audition in the past but have never auditioned for the show.
A representative for the show has denied their claims.
