Axed Britain's Got Talent judge David Hassellhoff has insisted he's pleased that he's no longer on the show, saying he probably wouldn't have returned anyway.
The former Baywatch star was replaced by comic David Walliams this year after only just one series.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror about this time on the show last Spring, David explained that he found it hard saying no to hopefuls.
"I don't like to say no, it's hard. I'm not good at being rude," he told the newspaper. "I'm not good at being honest when I know it’s going to break someone's heart.
"We only signed for a year and when I left his last words were 'fantastic, you did a great job'.
The Hoff confirmed he was not asked to return to the pael this year, but said he probably would've said no anyway.
"If I was invited back, and I wasn't, I'm not sure I would have come back - I'm having more fun being on stage," he said. "All I know is that people come up to me on the street and say 'Are you coming back?'."
He added: "I have nothing but respect for Simon and everyone on that show. They're still my great friends."
