Ant and Dec pay tribute to Simon Cowell ahead of Britain’s Got Talent semi-final


Britain’s Got Talent hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly seem to be missing Simon Cowell as they paid a tribute to him ahead of tonight’s semi-final.

Taking to Instagram, the comedy duo shared a behind-the-scenes snap of what looks like a shrine to the music-mogul.

While Dec looks lovingly at a photograph of Simon, Ant simply smiles and points to the snap.

Simon was forced to take some time off from BGT after he broke his back in a bicycle accident.

Although, fear not because Diversity star Ashley Banjo has stepped in to help on the BGT judging panel.

After the first semi-final last week, David Walliams was full of praise for the new addition, in more ways than one it seems.

Ant and Dec asked the comic how he felt now that ‘his Simon’ is taking a little break for the show, and he seemed actually thrilled at the prospect.

‘Simon who?’ David joked. ‘We’ve got Ashley Banjo filling Simon’s slot and he’s going to do an amazing job.

‘I mean, what does Simon Cowell do? He just says no to people, anyone could do that.’
