Ill Cowell misses BGT auditions

Simon Cowell was apparently forced to miss hours of Britain's Got Talent auditions because he was suffering from a migraine.

The TV star was supposed to be watching talent wannabes in Manchester but had to leave it to fellow judges David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden after falling ill, reported Metro.

David wasted no time in teasing Simon, tweeting: "Apparently we are starting BGT auditions without my Simon today. He isn't well. I wish I could be there to nurse him or give him a bed-bath."

The Little Britain star later added: "I wasn't feeling well yesterday, I must have given my Simon something. He told me not to come close, but I couldn't help myself..."

Amanda joked: "It's ace when he isn't here. We can have our say and relax and drink lots of champagne at his expense."

Simon rejoined the group in the evening, when he was feeling better.
