Actress says fans love fellow Britain’s Got Talent judge

Amanda Holden reckons Simon Cowell is as much-loved as the Pope.

The actress is amazed at how popular her fellow Britain’s Got Talent judge is with the public.

‘I mean, he’s like the Pope when he walks into the audience,’ Amanda, 39, tells Now.

‘Everyone kisses him.’ 

But Amanda insists Simon, 50, hasn’t let fame go to his head.

‘He cannot stand rudeness, he cannot stand people with terrible egos, he cannot stand spoilt people in this business – and it’s really refreshing,’ she says. 

‘He really is just one of the most genuine, down-to-earth people that I’ve ever met.

‘He’s obviously the biggest star I know – and I’ve met people with a lot less who’ve got much bigger egos in comparison to him.
