Britain's Got Talent: Kelly Brook blasts Simon Cowell and says she was GLAD to be axed

Kelly Brook has slammed Simon Cowell and says she was GLAD to have been axed from Britain's Got Talent.

Kelly was a short lived addition to the BGT judging line up in 2009 but lasted just the two episodes before getting the axe.

It was somewhat of a humiliating exit for Kelly with Simon Cowell saying at the time: "I have genuinely enjoyed working with Kelly, she is absolutely lovely and a complete professional.

"But its become clear the format doesn't support another judge and we will never add a fourth judge to the panel."

Although we now all know that Simon went on and did just that, with four judges on the show having worked pretty well... just without Kelly.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror recently, Kelly hit out at Simon for his treatment of her - and fellow judges at the time Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan - on the show.

She said: “He was late, he’d turn up at 1pm when the judges and I had been told to get there for 9am.

“It was a joke, it was totally disrespectful to me, Amanda and Piers."

The model explained: “He’d just rock up whenever he wanted to, it was his party and he did what he wanted.

“I had never known anything like it ­before. I’ve known, ever since my early modelling days, that you turn up on time. If I have a 9am call, I get there at 8.30am.”

And Kelly revealed how she was only ever asked to join the show ONE DAY before auditions began.

"He called me the day before and asked if I’d do it. I was like, ok then. So I called my stylist and got some clothes had my hair done, prepared myself," she recalled. “I’ve always wanted to be an actress, not judge a ­reality show. So when Simon told me that was it, I was like, ‘fine’. I took my money and came back to America.”
