Simon, 62, was criticized by his fellow judges for being late to the BGT auditions and even members of the audience clapped their hands slowly as they awaited his arrival. he.

But what excuse did Simon make for being late in the past? He hasn’t used the excuse that his dog ate his car keys, but there are some unusual reasons.
He’s late because he’s taking a shower
The music mogul said he was late to his BGT audition in 2012 because he was taking a shower.
Simon’s shower time has left him soaking in hot water with Ant and Dec – after soaking in the tub caused him to be late twice to his Britain’s Got Talent audition.
The Geordie duo, co-hosts of the hit ITV talent show, were mad for hanging around.
Ant and Dec even urged the Cardiff producers to start without him.
David and Alesha are also unimpressed with Cowell’s poor timekeeping skills – especially when he admits he took a dip in the bathtub watching cartoons.
When Simon was finally at the Millennium Center, Ant and Dec wrote on Twitter: “Simon Cowell was in the building (apparently) only two hours late. Boring.”
Audiences were also jittery with one depressed fan, Joe, posting online: “What a tiring day.”
An insider said at the time: “Simon is known for not being punctual, but this time he went too far.
“He kept all the production, the judges and the audience waiting for hours.
“He may have been late for work, but the fact that he still finds time to shower before waking up late is too much.
“If he did it again in London, we would really start without him because it costs money to keep the cameras on and all the production has to wait around.”
As late as he used the tanning booth
Simon Cowell was allegedly an hour late for Britain’s Got Talent again in 2016 – because he was busy using a tanning booth.
The audience had to wait when the audition was not conducted on time in London.
That meant thousands of people could do nothing but sit on their hands, including fellow judges Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.
When it became clear that Simon was the holder of the position, one member of the group apparently apologized and explained his position.
“We had to delay the show because Simon was stuck in the tanning chamber,” one crew member said, according to The Daily Star.
But it seems honestly that’s not the best policy, with the crowd choosing to boo rather than laugh at the announcement.
Another source added: “Some viewers were surprised by the news and started booing and slowly clapping their hands.”
Simon finally reached the venue, where he was met with cheers from an excited crowd looking to get things started.
For years, Simon made no secret of his preference for dark skin.
As BGT boss Simon probably won’t get a slap on the wrist for being late.
However, Simon will have to work on time if he takes a job elsewhere.
In the past, he has revealed how he was once a ‘great host’ on Top Gear that got his chance.
