Ooh Burn! Simon Cowell Really Doesn't Want Katie Hopkins For BGT
Show boss delivers classic put down as he spikes rumours...
And it seems that the reality TV tycoon is horrified at the idea of being replaced by the malicious tabloid troll, because he's delivered one of his greatest ever put downs after being quizzed about the reports.
Digital Spy collared him at the Elle Style Awards - where he wasn't collecting the "best dressed man" gong - and asked what he thought.
"I'd rather take a bath, fill it with vinegar, cut myself a thousand times, immerse myself slowly for an hour than work with her," he declared.
"So the answer is no!"
Oh, and in case you were wondering - SiCo was at the event to collect the Outstanding Contribution to Entertainment Award from Elle's editor-in-chief Lorraine Candy.
