Simon Cowell is to miss the Britain's Got Talent Christmas Special after judging he is not able to take part and is still recovering after breaking his back. Filming is reportedly set to begin in two weeks.
A source told The Sun: “Simon hoped he’d be well enough to fly from Los Angeles to the UK for the special show but he’s had to pull out. Plus the new lockdown measures — and him having to fly two weeks before the show so he could quarantine in advance — made it even more difficult for him to make the journey. Ashley stepped in for Simon during the pre-recorded semi-finals and was a hit with viewers so he was the first choice to step in again.”
