Amanda Holden has admitted that Simon Cowell IS Britain's Got Talent 2013.
Speaking at auditions for the new show in Wales this week, Amanda gushed about her boss Simon.
She said: “I hate saying it, I hate giving him credit for it, but he is the show.
“He’s just so truthful and honest, and everything he says makes sense whether you like it or not – on most things in life, to be absolutely honest."
The West End star went on: “He’s kind of got a very clean way of cutting through everything. He said to me once years ago, because of the job he does and what he’s known for, even when someone’s decorating his house they expect an honest opinion.”
Talking to the Daily Record, Amanda also revealed she didn't think Simon - rumoured to be dating Carmen Electra - would ever getting married.
She said: “Everyone’s obsessed with him getting married and having kids but he’s never gonna get married and he’s never having kids.
“It’s not what he wants to do – not everyone wants it. I don’t think he should get married, I think he should carry on enjoying glamorous women because who wouldn’t want to?
“I mean, what’s the problem there? Who wants to see him get married? There’ll be nothing to write about in the papers.”
Britain's Got Talent will air on ITV later in the Spring.
