"I miss Simon flirting with me!" says BGT star Amanda Holden

Britain's Got Talent 2011 judge has said that she misses Simon Cowell flirting with her on the show! The West End star told News Of The World that the lack of Cowell and Piers on the panel has changed the show - but for the better.

"Of course I miss Simon and Piers. After five years working together we all had very special camaraderie," Amanda told the newspaper. "I miss Simon flirting with me, metaphorically pulling my pigtails or simply just teasing me. He's got a gigantic ego but he's also a total gentleman.


"He can't bear snobbery, can't bear bad manners, can't bear people swearing. He misbehaves a lot but the bottom line is he's charming and a good person and a great friend. I've really missed him."

The 39-year-old continued: "And I miss the general banter with Piers, the camaraderie, the joking about. I really miss making fun of him. He's one of my greatest friends."

Despite the lack of either Simon or Piers on the Britain's Got Talent 2011 panel this year, Amanda suggest the show had improved. "Between The Hoff in his Hoffland and Michael's jokes, I've seriously never laughed so much," she added.
