Not the one and only Simon Cowell

The Britain's Got Talent judges are confronted by a singing and dancing Simon Cowell in tonight's edition of the ITV show.

Hopeful Eddie Shand, 53, from Newcastle, performs the Chesney Hawkes hit The One And Only while wearing a mask featuring the face of the show boss.

But viewers will see that Simon does not exactly see the funny side when he tells the Royal Mail operations manager his act is simply "low rent".

Also featured in tonight's show is a 71-year-old singer whose song makes the family show once again rather near the knuckle. Sandra Broadbent from Rochdale, who performs under the name Kelly Fox, performs the track Kiss My A** Baby although she tempered the expletives from the original song.

During the track she sings: "I came home a little early, I couldn't believe my eyes, you were lying there butt naked with a woman between your thighs."

And her performance prompts Simon to place a kiss on fellow judge Amanda Holden's bottom.

The show has previously been accused of featuring inappropriate material with earlier editions of this series including an 11-year-old singing about a one-night stand and a lap-dancing performance.

Last year burlesque dancer Beatrix Von Bourbon stripped to nipple tassels and underwear on the programme before the watershed but after viewers complained to regulator Ofcom, the show was cleared of breaching the programme code.

Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
