Britain's Got Talent's Simon Cowell fears competition from The Voice UK

The Voice UK 2013 coaches

Simon Cowell has predicted that there will be tough competition between The Voice UK and Britain's Got Talent 2013 this year.

The two shows went head to head last Spring on Saturday nights, and it hurt both in the ratings.

While The Voice UK started strong, even out rating the ITV rival series in the first few weeks.

But the two shows ended up cancelling one another out and just annoying viewers with the clashes.

BGT boss Simon suggested that the BBC would be just as competitive this year.

He said at the London auditions for Britain's Got Talent this week: "They will be very competitive.

"I don't take anything for granted. It will rest on how good the talent is on the shows."

And Simon reminded us that BGT ended up triumphing over the new BBC series in the long run.

He explained: "Everyone kind of predicted doom and gloom and then the word of mouth spreads, and in the end we beat them.

"I don't take anything for granted. We push these producers like crazy to try and make a better show than we did the year before, but it actually will rest on how good the talent is or how bad it is."
