Britain's Got Talent 2013: Simon Cowell is after a young, slim (and short) assistant!

Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell wants a new assistant for Britain's Got Talent 2013, and the requirements are pretty specific!

Simon's new right hand girl needs to be slim, young and brunette.

She must also be shorter than the music mogul and be able to handle a whip.

But before anyone starts complaining, this isn't a bizarre job offer but rather a casting call for this year's BGT trailer.

We can only imagine what it's going to involve...

A source told the Daily Record: “Simon’s people are clearly very particular when it comes to women.

“It was very specific to say the least – particularly about Simon’s height.”

But an insider insisted that Simon wasn't aware of the casting, nor had anything to do with the selection of the role.

The promo for the new series will be filmed on Thursday in London, along with Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.


Auditions for Britain’s Got Talent 2013 will air on ITV next month, with David tweeting that the launch date was currently set for April 13.

Meanwhile the BGT live show finalists short list will be revealed in May, with the live shows reportedly set for the first week of June.
