HE’S GOT TALENT Simon Cowell’s son Eric, 9, auditioning for this year’s Britain’s Got Talent – and his dad is dreading it

SIMON Cowell’s son Eric will be the star act on the next series of Britain’s Got Talent.

The ITV show boss revealed Eric, nine, wanted to audition for his dad when the show begins next year.

Simon, 63, said: “He’s decided that he’s going to audition for Britain’s Got Talent.

“That is going to be total torture.

“I mean, of all the things I’ve ever done, this will probably be the hardest.

“I said, because he does play drums, ‘Are you going to drum?’ and he said he wants to sing.

Despite Simon’s reservations, he went on to admit that the school-boy was deadly serious about getting up on stage when the show returns to the London Palladium next year.

Speaking backstage at the American version of the talent show, Simon added: “I think he wants to be in a rock band. He loves Green Day.

“I always promised him, ‘No, you stay on this side of the camera darling, stop’.

“I don’t know what it is. Maybe because all of these kids are auditioning and now he wants to be up there with his friends.”

Simon, who launched Britain’s Got Talent back in 2007, sits on the judging panel alongside Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and Bruno Tonioli – who replaced David Walliams in the line-up earlier this year.

The music mogul has previously taken Eric along to film
