'Britain's Got Talent' co-host Declan Donnelly was reportedly left "absolutely petrified" when a parrot auditioned for the show recently.
According to The Sun, the presenter ran off, leaving his co-host Ant McPartlin to conduct the post-audition interview alone.
A source said: "Dec is absolutely petrified of birds. So when he saw the parrot coming towards him he knew he couldn't go near it."
"He backed away, with Ant having to do the chat with the owner."
" The parrot didn't speak, but it didn't need to - Dec hated it!"
