The TV presenters were judging another instalment of the show, which sees contestants determine which of the six mystery singers are good and which are bad – without actually hearing them sing - when the comment was made.

The show, hosted by Paddy McGuinness, sees the judges assist members of the public to eliminate fake singers, in order to win cash.

The Britain's Got Talent judge and her fellow judge on the show, Carr, are seen leaving the set in an upcoming episode after contestant, Haloo, mocked their assistance, telling them: "I love you guys but you are no help."

BBC released a sneak peek of the episode that is due to air on Saturday. Following the comment, Holden was seen standing up from her chair and following Carr to the side of the set.

McGuinness was subsequently heard saying: "Off you go, see you later." Then, referring to another celebrity guest: "Lulu, you can stay."

The rest of the celebrity panel, including Lulu and This Morning's Alison Hammond, are shown roaring with laughter.

The funny moment comes after Carr didn't hold back as he made a brutal joke about Holden on the show last month.

He joked that his fellow judge had a "new face", and the radio presenter appeared not to mind, as she laughed along.

One of the possible vocalists on the BBC show was named "No Scrubs", as she studied medicine.

Referencing this, Carr then said: "You know, No Scrubs. Would it be appropriate to take a moment to thank the doctors and nurses that have worked tirelessly over the last couple of years?" The studio applauded before Carr continued: "On Amanda's new face..."

I Can See Your Voice continues on Saturday at 9.10 pm on BBC One.
