Britain's Got Talent 2015 judges Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell have both revealed they plan to quit the show.

The duo have now completed filming the auditions for this year's series, which could be one of their last.

The Louis Walsh of the BGT panel, Amanda Holden, who has been in her spot on the panel since the first series, says she's set to leave after ten years next year.

"I would love to make it ten and then I will probably call it a day. I think ten years is an amazing feat," she said. “I want a nice big clock and some sort of holiday — a nice retirement package.”

Meanwhile, Simon declared that he's only got "a couple more years" left in him on the show.

He said: "You can’t go on forever. I’ll do a couple more years, sure. I enjoy doing the shows. But I will retire.”

The music mogul, who last year returned to The X Factor panel, explained: “I’ve always only wanted to be on TV as long as I can actually do a good job.

"We created girl group Fifth Harmony on X Factor in America and they’ve just entered the charts at number three over there. That’s what my job is.

“When I can carry on creating successful artists it is worth doing. But if I am just being paid to judge I couldn’t do it.”

Speaking to us on the red carpet at auditions in London last week, Simon however revealed that he would still like to be a reality telly judge in 1,000 YEARS... IF they ever invent the technology to freeze people.

"I’ll be just be a head on the table, I can see that happening,” he quipped.

BGT will air on ITV in the Spring.
