Britain's Got Talent: Simon Cowell apologises to Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli

Jonathan and Charlotte

Simon Cowell has apologised to Britain's Got Talent stars Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli for suggesting they should split up!

The pair finished as runners up on the series earlier this year, but Simon had told the pair they should go their separate ways in their original audition.

However 17-year-old Charlotte revealed this week: “Simon apologised to me for what he said to me in our first audition.

“He said, ‘It’s really nice to see you even though I was so mean to you before. You’ve improved so much since the first audition and I love you as a duo now.’”

Jonathan added: “He was so positive about the album and said he loved the tracks and it was going to be a big success.”

Meanwhile, Jonathan has been shedding the pounds ahead of the launch of the pair's debut album this month.

He said: “I’ve lost just under a stone, which is quite exciting.

“I’d like to look like myself but thinner. I just want to be healthier.”

Speaking to The Sun, a source added: “Jonathan is losing so much weight he is having to be fitted out new suits for the album launch.”

Jonathan and Charlotte's debut album Together is out on September 24.
