Simon Cowell Goes On BGT Stage For First Time
Head judge press-ganged into appearing with sexy dancer at auditions...
The reality TV mogul was "persuaded" to join in a sexy dancer's act by fellow judge David Walliams on tomorrow's opening episode of the new series.
After 41-year-old Keri had finished her chair dance routine, David declared: "Wouldn’t it be great to see Simon sat on the chair and you doing the dancing? It would be wonderful to see that."
And after much urging from the crowd and a little physical force from big Dave, SiCo relented and agreed to sit in the chair on stage.
It was only then that former Little Britain star Walliams revealed he intended to join in the routine.
Presenter Ant McPartlin said: "For the first time in seven years we’ve got him on the stage!"
And David commented afterwards: "I got Simon on the stage this year for the first time in the history of Simon Cowell being on television.
"I had to use all my weight, because I probably weigh about twice as much as he does, but I dragged him up!"
The show begins at 7pm tomorrow evening on ITV1.
