Britain’s Got Talent 2013: Fans furious as they wait an extra hour in the cold when Simon Cowell’s late… again!
It has of course been reported several times that Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell is exceptionally bad at timekeeping, and his fellow judges have been angered by his constant tardiness.
Amanda Holden recently spoke out about it, as did David Walliams, however it would seem that their pleas to Simon to be on time for auditions have fallen on deaf ears as it’s been reported today that he was over an hour late for the last day of tryouts in Birmingham earlier this week.
The Daily Star reports that fans queuing to get into the auditions venue were kept waiting an extra hour in the freezing cold, waiting for the music mogul to put in an appearance.
A show source said, “Everyone was raging. The show was scheduled for 3pm.
“The presenters were ready, thousands of fans were waiting, and Simon hadn’t even left London yet.”
The paper adds, “Back in January he kept everyone waiting for a pre-show dinner the night before the auditions kicked off in Cardiff.
“The rest of the panel got so sick of hanging around, they went off without him.”
