Auditions for Britain’s Got Talent 2022 recently kicked off at the London Palladium. However Amanda Holden has claimed she is unable to take on radio commitments as she cannot predict her fellow judge’s time-keeping.

I can’t do both ends of the day, especially when Mr Simon Cowell still is a bad time keeper

The Heart Radio star had been forced to take a few days off from co-presenting her breakfast radio show due to her scheduling commitments, and seemed to blame Simon.

When she returned to the airwaves with Jamie Theakston, she was quick to explain exactly why she had been absent.

“Britain’s Got Talent you see,” she confided.

“I can’t do both ends of the day, especially when Mr Simon Cowell still is a bad time keeper.

“Me and Alesha and Ant and Dec and everybody are ready at by one,” she revealed of the others on the show.

“We’re supposed to start around then…Then we don’t normally start until three, then we finish at seven, and then we start the next show.”

She added: “Last night I got home at just before 12 o’clock at night!”

An early bird like Amanda, who has been known to regularly rise before the sun does to prepare for her Heart Breakfast show, may not have taken kindly to Simon’s timing.

And when Jamie quizzed her about it, she openly confessed it was “rubbish”.

“He just doesn’t turn up on time?” her co-host asked.

“Well no, I mean he’s busy isn’t he?

“He does loads of other things and then he just sorts of potters, I would imagine, I don’t know – a bit of gardening,” Amanda joked in a barely concealed swipe at the definition of “busy”.

Jamie dissolved into laughter, hitting back: “Rocks in when he fancies!”

When Simon finally does arrive, he launches readily into his character as TV’s notorious Mr Nasty.

During previous auditions, he had jokingly threatened comic David Walliams with the loss of his judging job if he was unable to curb his tongue.

After David had poked fun at him for not knowing what a Millionaire Shortbread biscuit was, and teasingly branded him out of touch, he’d warned: “I’d be careful if I were you.

“You’ll be out of a job and end up a contestant on Pointless next year!”

The banter between the pair has been highly entertaining to viewers, however.

During the latest spate of auditions, Simon quipped: “Hopefully my marriage will last longer than yours!” mocking David’s five years of nuptials to supermodel Lara Stone, between 2010 and 2015.

Many had been surprised to hear that 62-year-old Simon, who, despite a stream of glamorous girlfriends, has never previously married, would be settling down at all.

Yet his fiancée Lauren Silverman flashed an engagement ring reportedly worth £250,000 as she and Simon left the last session of Britain’s Got Talent auditions.

Their nuptials look set to be one of the showbiz weddings of the decade.
