Britain’s Got Talent judge says she finds it easy to be cruel

Amanda Holden says she’s become a bitch – because of Simon Cowell.

The actress says her fellow Britain’s Got Talent judge has encouraged her to unleash her cruel streak.

‘I used to hate hurting people’s feelings and shattering dreams,’ she tells The Sun. ‘When I tried to tell an act it was all over, my mouth went dry and my mind blank.

‘But I’ve learnt so much from Simon and now I’m ruthless. As time goes by it gets easier.’

Amanda, 37, and Simon, 48, will return for the new series of the ITV talent show in the spring.
