Britain's Got Talent head judge will 'definitely' be back for the new series in 2021.

A TV source told The Sun: "Simon was gutted at having to sit out the show this year. But he’s been totally focused on getting better and will definitely be back on the panel...

"He’s come on in leaps and bounds recently, thanks to letting his body heal, a healthy diet and some California sun. He’s also enjoyed being surrounded by his family. But he loves his job and is raring to go, especially as BGT offers so much joy and light entertainment in dark times...

"The panel are all really excited to have him back, though they thought Ashley did a great job and he’ll definitely perform on the show again next year with Diversity."

Simon Cowell had to miss this year's finals due to recovering from breaking his back in America. He was replaced by former winner and Dancing On Ice judge Ashley Banjo.
