A mystery egg-throwing woman on tonight's final of Britain's Got Talent appears to be a member of the popular string ensemble The Raven Quartet.
Natalie Holt, viola player in The Raven Quartet, has reportedly caused a TV sensation by storming the stage during the final of Britain's Got Talent and throwing eggs at head judge Simon Cowell.
The incident happened during a performance by singing duo Richard and Adam. Holt was a backing musician for the performance.
A spokesperson for Britain's Got Talent told the Daily Mail: "During tonight’s show an incident took place during the finale of Richard and Adam’s performance. Natalie Holt was part of the backing group for their performance and as a result of her misguided actions the police were called. However, we have decided to take no further action at this stage."
After it emerged who the mystery egg-thrower allegendly was, the Twitter account for the Raven Quartet confirmed that the rest of the group had nothing to do with the incident: "Just to clarify… The other 3 of us were working elsewhere today and found out when you did."
Simon Cowell was hit by the eggs, but continued with the show after removing his jacket. He stated afterwards that he thought it was part of the act, and that Holt was actually throwing sandwiches.
The Raven Quartet appeared on the popular talent show in 2012, and have previously spoken out about the experience, with one member describing it as "hellish".
