Britain's Got Talent 2015: Simon Cowell blasts guitar playing Ed Sheeran wannabes

Britain's Got Talent boss Simon Cowell has admitted he's FED UP of guitar playing hopefuls on the show.

While the music mogul said he didn't want to impose an outright ban on the instrument, he has had enough of what he calls 'Ed Sheeran wannabes'.

Speaking to us on the red carpet at Britain's Got Talent auditions in London today, Simon said to budding contestants on this year's show: "Don't bring a guitar.

"I'm SO bored of everyone thinking they can be the next Ed Sheeran, we're just not going to find him on the show. We're almost a guitar free zone."

Simon's mini-rant continued: "It's just these people who ever only play in their bedrooms and they think they've found this great version of a song they think no one else has heard of and everyone's doing it, it's so annoying."

In our chat with Simon - which you can watch in full above - the BGT judge also reveals he hopes to see the show still on air in 1,000 YEARS time.

And he plans to still be a judge on the panel after freezing himself.

"I'll be just be a head on the table, I can see that happening," Simon suggested.

The dad-of-one went on to reveal his plans for this Valentine's Day including a SHOCK 50 Shades of Grey confession.
