Simon Cowell demonstrated on Britain’s Got Talent that he isn’t afraid to make himself the punchline when he made a startling remark about his own face.
During Saturday night’s episode, a skilled participant named Tom Crosbie dazzled the judges by using a collection of Rubik’s Cubes to build an image of 67-year-old Bruno Tonioli’s face.
Simon, 63, was left speechless by the performance after Amanda Holden, 52, commented that he had surely replicated Bruno’s ‘orange’ skin.
‘How the hell do you do that?’ he asked, as Tom replied: ‘Practise lots of different faces. Turns out you have a really difficult face to make Rubik’s cubes out of.’
At this remark, Simon then made a jibe at his own expense, stating: ‘I’ll change my face… again.’
Alesha and Amanda burst out laughing.
Commenting on the act itself, Alesha added: ‘That was very, very clever.’
This isn’t the first time Simon’s face has shown on Britain’s Got Talent.
In 2019, Lost Voice Guy comic Lee Ridley took aim at the media mogul while performing on The Champions spin-off, stating: ‘If I don’t make it to the final I’m going to put on a brave face.
‘I’ve spoken to Simon Cowell’s plastic surgeon and he said it will cost about £5,000.’
Simon rolled his eyes, before adding: ‘And the rest.’
During last night’s broadcast, the judge acknowledged to breaching the show’s rules by pushing the Golden Buzzer three times for a performance… despite being forbidden to do so.
After seeing dance company Unity do a ‘amazing’ routine, the TV personality couldn’t help but toss the rules out the window.
‘We don’t have any Golden Buzzers left… but sometimes I feel you should break the rules,’ he stated, before telling the dancers: ‘Honestly you deserve that Golden Buzzer, that was absolutely beautiful.’
Britain’s Got Talent returns on Saturday at 8pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
