BGT 2015: Amanda Holden will POISON Simon Cowell if she's axed

Amanda Holden (Britain's Got Talent 2015)

Amanda Holden says she'll POISON Simon Cowell if he ever fires her from Britain's Got Talent.

It had been reported that the veteran telly show judge was set to quit the show after ten years, but she insists that her words were taken out of context.

Instead, Amanda wants to stay behind the judges' desk forever even if Simon were to try and axe her.

"He's the king of reinvention and he's perfectly entitled to change the judging panel," Amanda said this week. "But I need to be forewarned so that I can go and change his mind. I would be upset but I wouldn't be heartbroken because I have so many other things happening as well. It is my favourite job though."

And as for just what Amanda would do to change Simon's mind, she said: "Probably blackmail, threats, and slowly poisoning him, little things like that.

"I would turn Britain’s Got Talent into Game of Thrones. I’ll be back next year, don’t you worry about that!"

The West End performer and actress added: "I know so much about Simon but I like to count myself as a friend of his and I am very loyal. I would never want to upset him because as much as he has this gruff exterior, he is, I believe, soft inside. So I would never hurt him.

Meanwhile, Amanda revealed that she rates David Walliams over short-lived previous BGT judge Michael McIntyre.

"If I’m honest, I think this is the best panel," she declared. "I was really fond of Michael McIntyre but I think David is second to none, he’s given the panel a huge boost, as well as Alesha.

"Having another girl, I think Simon hoped would be awkward for me, but it’s turned out that we are a sisterhood and strong together. It’s great that I have got back-up."

Britain's Got Talent 2015 starts this Saturday night on ITV from 8PM.
