Strictly Come Dancing host Sir Bruce Forsyth has called for kids to be banned from big talent shows like Britain's Got Talent.

The 85-year-old TV star told newspapers that the programme puts children through an "ordeal", that ends in many of them crying.

"I don't think that's entertainment," he said. "I don't think they should put children on that are too young."

He's been backed by a charity that works to protect kids on TV.

BGT judge Alesha Dixon told Ricky how she feels about the issue at the talent show's launch on April 11.
