Britain's Got Talent judges: Who will replace Simon Cowell?

simon cowell x factor face

Britain’s Got Talent hasn’t even hit the screens yet this year, and already rumours are flying as to who’ll replace Simon Cowell when he finally retires.

The music mogul confessed during auditions in London last week that - unless scientists figured out a way to freeze him - he's only got a "few more years" left in him on the show.

Amanda Holden has also hinted she'll quit the show next year after a decade behind the judges desk, but could replace them?

Former BGT panellist and big mouth Piers Morgan is the current hot favourite at 3/1, followed by feisty Mel B, who’s hot from X Factor judging at 5/1 with bookies Paddy Power today.

Acid tongued Katie Hopkins is currently fourth in the market to put contestants through their paces, with Britain’s most hated woman the 10/1 shot to be giving poor hopefuls her ten cents.

Paddy Power said, “If Simon was Mr Nasty, it looks like Mrs Nastier could be hitting the panel soon if Hopkins gets her way.”
