Britain's Got Talent spoilers: There are some right weird acts on this year's series

bgt here we go again

This year's Britain's Got Talent auditions have seen some "incredibly bad' acts, Simon Cowell is happy to say.

Yes, happy!

In a chat with the Daily Mail, Simon at first lamented the "complete rubbish" that had turned up to try out at this year's auditions.

"Let's find another word for 'rubbish'," he quickly added, "That's a bit rude. Shall we say 'incredibly bad'?

"We had the most boring animal act in the world - a tortoise trying to break its own world record. I mean, how anyone thought that was going to be interesting I don't know."

However Simon thinks such terrible acts are one of the best things about BGT and it's certainly become one reason we all tune in to the auditions every Spring.

"You want that kookiness, don't you?" he continued. "We embrace that.

"The holy grails getting that balance between the brilliant and the ... weird."

Britain's Got Talent 2016 is back for a landmark tenth series this year and the hilarious awful acts aren't the only thing returning.

There's also David Walliams, eager as ever to wind up Simon.

"David is way more arrogant and cocky than he's ever been," the music mogul complained this weekend. "He's a maniac, and he'd be the first to admit that, but that's part of the fun.

"You never know which David is going to turn up, nice David, bad David, arrogant David… but I do like him."

Britain's Got Talent 2016 begins next Saturday night (April 9) on ITV.
