You know when your mum buys your school uniform three sizes too big so you’ll ‘grow into it’? Well, check out these pics of Simon Cowell.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge rocked up for another day of filming for the hit ITV show, joining fellow judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, and newbie Bruno Tonioli.
Simon, 63, sported a seriously baggy outfit, prioritising comfort in an untucked white shirt and grey trousers.
The music mogul waved to fans and paparazzi, flashing a thumbs up as he headed to the Lowry Theatre for more auditions, which will air for us in April.
Simon also donned his signature sunglasses and leather shoes with, of course, most of his buttons undone to expose his tanned chest.
The former X Factor judge looked more slender than viewers might have been used to seeing him in the past, as he lost four stone in 2020.
Speaking openly about shedding the weight over the course of a year, Simon raved about his new vegan diet and newfound love for exercise during lockdown.
Simon went on his health kick following a hospital visit back in 2017 – after he fell down the stairs at his home due to low blood pressure.
Thankfully, he’s fighting fit once more, although Simon has also had his fair share of nervy moments already on BGT 2023.
According to reports, a masked magician took Simon to the stage and instructed him to sit down during his audition.
The auditionee later put a hood on Simon’s head, poured a light fluid on it and had his head locked in a box which was then opened at the front for the audience to see inside.
The Mirror also claims the magician dropped a flame into the box and his entire head went up in flames.
Co-judge Alesha Dixon reportedly exclaimed: ‘Simon, he set your entire head on fire!’
Simon said he had no idea what had happened or that the lighter fluid was poured onto him, which was probably for the best!
Fortunately, Simon wasn’t injured and has continued to get along with his fellow judges like a house on fire (sorry).
Following David Walliams’ exit and despite rumours of Alan Carr taking his place, former Strictly panellist Bruno pulled up a chair to the judges’ desk.
After his official introduction confirming his new role during filming, he said: ‘Thank you very much. I am thrilled to be here,’ as the audience cheered and clapped for him and the panel.
He added in a statement: ‘Here we are, Britain’s Got Talent. I am so excited. It’s my first show, I have no idea what’s going to happen, but I’m sure it’s going to be brilliant.’
Talking about his BGT gig, he also boasted to The Sun: ‘This is the biggest show on British TV, now that I’m here. I mean it. Simon is going to hate that I’ve said that but oh well.
‘I have nothing bad to say about Strictly, it changed my life.’
Britain’s Got Talent returns to ITV later this year.
