Britain's Got Talent 2014: Simon Cowell bans sob stories (so he says)

Simon Cowell

Britain's Got Talent 2014 judge Simon Cowell has had enough of sob stories on the show.

The music mogul returned to the panel at the weekend alongside Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams as auditions kicked off in Belfast.

But within the first few acts there were already tales of woe being told on stage.

Simon complained to one female singer: "I've heard the sob story before.

"Not many people can come on stage and sing like that."

He ranted: "I am bored of these sob stories now.

"I hate to sound harsh but I am."

Fellow BGT judge Amanda Holden agreed, adding: "Everyone has got struggles.

"You just need to stand on that stage and sing."

It certainly makes a change to the show!

Britain’s Got Talent 2014 will air on ITV in the Spring.
