Bgt: What do you think of Simon Cowell's running order shake-up?

31 March 2015 4:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent could be about to switch up the running order of the live shows to prove it's not a fix.

Simon Cowell told The Sun that he wants to mix things up in the new series.

"I think we're going to try to change up the live shows so the running order is more random," he said. "There was criticism last year that there was almost a formula, you know, a dance act would go on first, the singer at the end."

Fans have historically suggested that acts in programmes such as Britain's Got Talent or The X Factor can rise or fall depending on when they perform, with contestants at the start of the show thought to have a worse chance of getting through than those at the end.

The report suggests that Cowell wants to be more "open" about the running order - and could even »

Amanda Holden has to wear nipple covers on TV

30 March 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Amanda Holden has revealed that she has to wear nipple covers on TV.

The Britain's Got Talent presenter said that the items "feature a lot in my life".

"I have nipple covers because it's something I have suffered with all my life," Holden told The Daily Star.

She added: "On This Morning I forgot them and Phillip Schofield found them, and we played a game of throwing them at the wall to see how far we could throw them, and how long they stuck to the brick wall.

"So they seem to feature a lot in my life."

She went on to say that her stylist tried to convince her not to wear the covers, saying: "She actually said to me, 'You've got great nipples, get them out'."

It was previously revealed that Holden will host ITV's new series Give a Pet a Home.

Open thread: Who should replace Dermot O'Leary as X Factor host?

27 March 2015 2:35 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

So Dermot O'Leary is leaving The X Factor after eight years fronting the ITV singing competition.

In a statement, the host thanked Simon Cowell and the show's family - but talk has inevitably already turned to who will fill Dermot's dancing shoes.

Who do you think should present The X Factor now? Should it jump into the safe pair of hands that is Ant & Dec who already front sister show Britain's Got Talent? Or is Olly Murs the way forward as an ex-contestant who knows the process inside-out and has experience on The Xtra Factor?

Digital Spy rounds up some of the possibilities:

Ant & Dec

Fresh off the back of a fourteenth Best Presenter win in a row at the National Television Awards, Ant & Dec are widely seen as the safest pair of hands to present primetime telly on a Saturday night. Experience on Pop Idol is in their favour too, »

Jeremy Clarkson: Is he fired or not? What's going on right now

25 March 2015 6:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Updated 2pm, Wednesday, March 25: Jeremy Clarkson has been axed by the BBC. His contract will not be renewed.

BBC director general Tony Hall said: "It is with great regret that I have told Jeremy Clarkson today that the BBC will not be renewing his contract. It is not a decision I have taken lightly. I have done so only after a very careful consideration of the facts and after personally meeting both Jeremy and Oisin Tymon."

More here.

The BBC is expected to announce whether Jeremy Clarkson will continue to work at the corporation today (March 25), following his "fracas" with a Top Gear producer over a lack of steak and chips.

As some newspapers claim he's been sacked but the BBC continues to deny this, here's a handy guide to the furore's fact and fiction as it stands.

Britain's Got Talent 2015 trailer promises that "anything can happen"

23 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent has launched its trailer for the 2015 series - with the promise "anything can happen."

Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams are shown touring the country in cartoon form in a car driven by Ant & Dec, seeing what talent the country has to offer.

Acts from guitar-playing cats to breakdancing grannies to underwater escapologists are shown bidding for a place in the show from the judges.

One person who definitely won't be seen on the show is Katie Hopkins, after Cowell ruled out her replacing him if he leaves to focus on shows in America.

When asked by Digital Spy what the chances are of the Celebrity Big Brother star replacing him are, Cowell said: "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. So the answer is no!"

Watch Amanda Holden throw hot garlicky beans all over Gino D'Acampo

17 March 2015 6:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Amanda Holden had her own kitchen nightmare when she accidentally threw hot cannelloni beans all over celebrity chef Gino D'Acampo on This Morning.

The Britain's Got Talent judge had already revealed to D'Campo that she was scared of the pan sizzling with beans before he attempted to give her a simple 'back and forth' demonstration of how to handle the pan.

Unfortunately, Holden was a little over-zealous with the motions and ended up spilling the contents of the frying pan all over D'Campo's jeans.

"I'm a destroyer," she announced, before placing the pan back on the hob.

"Did I not tell you I had an interview after the show?" D'Campo joked (we think).

"You were worried about your hands smelling of garlic... You've got beans down your trousers," co-host Phillip Schofield helpfully added. "Look at the state of that!"

"I want to go home," she cried.

From Simon Cowell to Natalia Kills, are these TV's 7 cruelest talent show judges?

17 March 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Footage of Natalia Kills and Willy Moon shocked TV viewers this week - and not just because we discovered where former All Saints star Melanie Blatt is now.

No, Kills and Moon were both fired as judges on X Factor New Zealand after launching a vicious tirade at a wannabe singer, labelling his performance "disgusting" and "absolutely artistically atrocious".

They're not the first ones to completely insult the contestants standing in front of them. It's just that this lot - somehow - got away with it…

1. Gordon Heuckeroth on Holland's Got Talent

In one of the most shocking things we've ever seen on television, Holland's Got Talent judge Gordon Heuckeroth spouted some horrific racial drivel to contestant Xiao Wang during the 2013 edition of the programme.

"Which number are you singing?," he said, moments before Xiao began his performance. "No 39 with rice?"

Even Gordon's fellow judges challenged him on the comment »
