Britain's Got Talent 2012: Simon Cowell to sign The Mend?

Simon Cowell wants to make Britain's Got Talent wild card The Mend as big as The Wanted, it has been claimed.

The boys were revealed last night as the special pick to make the BGT final, having finished third in their semi-final last Sunday.

But the group failed to make the Top 3, with Ashleigh and Pudsey eventually winning the show, and Jonathan & Charlotte and Only Boys Aloud finishing as runners up.

However it seems it's not over for the lads, who were booted off of The X Factor last year.

Despite winning over Gary Barlow and the other judges- and getting a spot in bootcamp - they were kicked out of the competition for having a management deal.

Now Simon wants to turn them into stars, following in the success of both The Wanted and One Direction.

A supposed source told The Sun today: “Simon has One Direction but The Wanted’s success proves there is a solid market for a rough-and-ready boyband.

"He’s tempted to take them on.”
