BGT’s Simon Cowell reveals what he keeps under the desk

Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell has revealed what he keeps under his desk – his nuts.

TV’s ‘Mr Nasty’, 62, has become a health fanatic in recent years and avoids sweets.

Instead, he said, “I have a bowl of nuts under the desk.

“When I can, I have cut sugar, dairy and gluten from my diet.

“It really made a difference to my health. Also, before my accident, I was cycling a lot. I was doing about 10 or 11 miles a day.”

During Saturday’s (April 23) show, a Mary Poppins look-alike wows the crowd by flying across the stage.

But instead of singing family favorites like Supercali-fragilisticexpialidocious, she shockingly raps about her “bumps” and “little bumps.”

Performer Mary P is inspired by the nanny made famous in the 1964 Disney film starring Julie Andrews.

At first, Cowell tells him, “I think I recognize you.”

But fellow judge Amanda Holden, 51, adds: ‘She looks like the real deal.’

However, the panel fears that his performance was ruined when Black Eyed Pea’s song My Humps starts playing.

Mary P even says, “That’s the wrong song.”

But as she raps on the track, which has the lyrics “I’m going to get you drunk, get you drunk. I’m getting drunk on my bump”, she is joined on stage by two burly dancers dressed as chimney sweeps.

Meanwhile, ITV’s talent scouting program came under fire last week after two acts were awarded the golden buzzer and an automatic place in the final.

Fans fumed that Loren Allred, 32, and Axel Blake had previous careers in the spotlight before appearing on the show.

Loren Allred had previously recorded Never Enough for The Greatest Showman and Axel has his own Amazon Prime show.

Defending the two stars who faced heavy criticism from viewers last week, an ITV spokesperson said: “All contestants are auditioned on merit and judged on their performance of the day.”

“While some of the acts appearing on the show have had some success, they are not household names.”

Britain’s Got Talent airs Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
