Simon Cowell says he won't 'tolerate awfulness' on Britain's Got Talent 2012!

Simon Cowell (Britain's Got Talent 2012)Simon Cowell has said he will continue to be honest with acts on Britain's Got Talent 2012, claiming that he won't 'tolerate awfulness'!

The 52-year-old media mogul - famous for his trademark put-downs and insults - is relishing being back in his seat at the judges' desk, having rejoined the show full-time for this year's series.

He told the official BGT website: "I tell it like it is! I don’t tolerate awfulness.

"This year I’m raising the bar even higher – I want to see something that’s never been done. And the panel is brilliant. David and I like to tease the girls and I’ve assumed the role of relationship coach to Alesha."

Cowell also reaffirmed his love for the show's canine hopefuls. "I loved The Artist and in particular it’s leading man, Uggie the dog," he commented. "I’d love to turn an all-singing, all-dancing mutt into a millionaire!"

Earlier today it was confirmed that BGT will clash with BBC One's new talent contest The Voice for twenty minutes when they both launch next Saturday.
