Simon Cowell does not want his son Eric to appear on Britain’s Got Talent any time soon, according to the music mogul.
David Walliams, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, and David Walliams will all be appearing on the panel this weekend, which will mark her 62nd appearance on the show.
After being off the air for a year due to the epidemic, Britain’s Got Talent is back with Ant and Dec at the helm of the nation’s favourite talent show.
This will be the 15th season of the show, and the tenth year that the current judging panel will be hitting the dreaded red buzzers on the stage.
One of the most appealing aspects of BGT is its diversity, as evidenced by the fact that acts of all abilities and ages can apply, all in the hope of landing a seat on the Royal Variety Performance.
In spite of this, Simon – who had his son Eric with partner Lauren Silverman in 2014 – does not want his mini-me to perform for him, confessing that it would make him “terrified.”
Earlier this month, The Sun published an exclusive report revealing that Simon has plans for Eric to one day take over his company, which includes becoming a judge on Britain’s Got Talent.
In April 2019, Simon said that he had considered naming the young boy ‘Simon,’ but that he ultimately chose to name him after his own father, Eric Selig Phillip Cowell, instead.
David has been regarded as “unsackable,” which suggests that Eric may have to wait until he is no longer employed before taking over for him.
His revelation came during a Q&A session during promotion for the ITV show, during which children’s author David began by stating that each of their judging techniques is influenced by their own parental roles.
‘I believe that having children fundamentally alters one’s personality. According to David, ‘I believe Amanda was the only person who had been a parent before [we started].’
