Some were concerned at Queen’s choice of Adam given his start on reality TV, however in the same 2011 interview, Brian shared his comfort in the idea.
He said: “You’d have to define ‘legitimate’ first. The long-term answer has to be that, if you have enough talent and enough will to succeed, you will get there by whatever route presents itself.
“Once you have scaled the castle walls, with the sword in your hand, it matters little how you got there.
“I’ve not always been positive about shows like this, but there is no doubt that it offers a door to some real genuine talent along the way.”
