Simon Cowell has tipped son Eric to be a judge on Britain's Got Talent one day.

The music mogul reckons little Eric already has a "good eye and ear" for talent after watching some of this year's try outs.


Simon said: "He does enjoy coming down to auditions. The first time I brought him to Britain’s Got Talent he thought it was scary because of the big red Xs, but then after a few months I said, ‘What does Daddy do when he goes to work?’ and he said I pressed buttons - it’s a little more than that!

"Now, he understands the show so I watch him and I’m like, ‘Eric do you like it? Don’t you like it?’. He’s got a really good eye and ear for it, so yes, he’s going to be doing this one day."

Amanda Holden added: "I think he’s got an eye for talent and a great sense of humour. He’s very cute, as soon as he arrives in the room I’m all over him and he runs a mile!

"Rightly so because he knows me, but he doesn’t know me that well. I’m like, ‘Give me a kiss Eric!’ and he’s like, ‘No!’. That’s right, he should be like that. It’s just like Simon, he runs a mile from me as well! "

Meanwhile, Eric is seemingly not the only kid on set this year.

Simon said of working alongside David Walliams: "I’ve just got to the point now, genuinely, where it’s like having your auntie’s dog, who’s getting on a bit, around you. You go round for tea and the dog starts humping your leg.


"The first couple of years it’s like, ‘Can you please not hump my leg?’, after the third or fourth you’re like, ‘Just get it over with’, and that’s kind of how I feel about David right now."

Britain's Got Talent 2017 starts Saturday, April 15 on ITV from 8PM.
