Britain's Got Talent auditions interrupted by Simon Cowell's bubble bath

Simon Cowell (Britain's Got Talent 2013)

Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions took a break in London earlier this week for Simon Cowell to enjoy a bubble bath!

The music mogul popped back to his posh hotel inbetween acts to enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub.

It follows last year's delays after Simon went all the way back to his home during the auditions to have a wash.

“Simon took some stick last year for delaying auditions by going home for a bath," a source claimed today. “So this year, by going to a hotel nearby, he can easily fit a bath into the break.

“The other judges still tease him for going to have a bath but everyone is happy he’s not holding up the auditions!”

But despite Simon's efforts, it's not kept everyone happy.

Some people who won't be showing Simon any love any time soon are the audience who had to wait in the freezing cold waiting for him to turn up in London and Cardiff.

The crowds arrived for the first audition show of the series at 1PM, but Simon only turned up at 2:50PM.

"Simon Cowell, hurry up! Some of us are freezing to death here," said one fan on Twitter.

Another audience member said: “Waiting to watch Britain’s Got Talent auditions, Simon Cowell is late.”

And a third added: “This is just ridiculous. Simon Cowell is one-and-a-half hours late, I hate that man.”
