Cowell's kisses for cute Collie
Simon Cowell went all soft for a cute dog in tonight's Britain's Got Talent.
The TV judge, once dubbed Mr Nasty, blew kisses at seven-year-old Border Collie Matisse to get his attention when he walked onto the stage.
Cowell then had the audience in stitches as he talks baby talk to the dog, asking: "Who's a good boy?"
Owner Jules O'Dwyer, 49, revealed her ambition is for Matisse to be the star of his own children's TV show, before impressing with their dog catcher routine.
The judges were also treated to performances from The Kaneh Masons - six brothers and sisters from Nottingham who perform a classical music piece on piano, cello and violin - and five piece tap dancing group Beat Brothers, who tried to win David Walliams' vote by flashing some flesh.
The latest episode of the ITV talent show also saw judges Cowell, Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden whittle down their favourite acts so far as they chose the 45 who have made it to the live semi-finals.
