Hasselhoff could replace Simon Cowell on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’December 2nd, 2010 - 6:11 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 02 (ANI): Simon Cowell has reportedly chosen David Hasslehoff as his replacement on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’.
The former star of ‘Baywatch’ and ‘Knight Rider’ has been offered a 500,000 pounds deal and the American cult figure, 58, is said to be ‘really looking forward’ to the auditions, which starts next month. Hasselhoff was picked as he has the experience of being a judge on America’s Got Talent, the US version of the wannabe show. He was dumped in January over his notorious drinking antics after appearing in four series.
But Simon, who had no say in that decision, sees him as an ideal replacement when he stands down to concentrate on the US version of X Factor.
A source close to The Hoff said, “David was delighted to receive the call as he really enjoyed his time on America’s Got Talent,” reports the Sun.
“He is popular in the UK and loves the country, so for him it is a dream opportunity. You might say it’s ironic Simon asked David to replace him after he was dropped in America. But they are great pals and David is really looking forward to the auditions,” he added.
Former BGT judge Piers Morgan has also bailed out after being signed as a chat show host by US news network CNN.
However, a BGT source said, “We are talking to David Hasselhoff. Nothing has been finalized.” (ANI)
