Britain's Got Talent 2014: Ant and Dec hated being judges!

Ant and Dec (Britain's Got Talent 2013)

Ant and Dec have confessed they won't be looking to become Britain's Got Talent judges ever again.

With Simon Cowell having to miss some auditions in Manchester last week due to illness the Geordie pair stepped in for him on the panel.

It was the first time in the show's history that Ant and Dec had taken up a seat (or two) on the panel, although it sounds like they've already have enough.

The duo found it too hard to say no or buzz acts with David Walliams branding the pair too nice.

He tweeted: “@antanddec sat in for @SimonCowell today but were too nice to buzz anyone. Aaah…!”

Speaking on the red carpet ahead of auditions in London yesterday, Ant and Dec confessed they weren't ever planning on sitting behind the judges' desk again.

Dec told reporters outside the Hammersmith Apollo: "It was really hard because we'd been talking to all the acts backstage and we're on their side, so to have to hit the buzzer you immediately apologise and say 'I'm really sorry'."

He added: "I don't think we'll be rushing back to be judges any time soon!"

The BGT auditions will air on ITV in the Spring.
