Well, that's definitely a 'no' to Katie Hopkins then

Well, that’s our dreams dashed.

Katie Hopkins is not likely to get a spot on the Britain’s Got Talent judging panel, if Simon Cowell has anything to do with it.

When quizzed if there would ever be space for the Celebrity Big Brother star on the judging panel of the ITV talent show, Simon, not one to mince his words said: ‘I would rather take a bath, fill it with vinegar, cut myself a thousand times, immerse myself slowly for an hour, than work with her.’

Riiiight! So that’s a no, then.

made his feelings clear when he took to the red carpet at the star-studded Elle Style Awards at the Sky Garden in London last night, where he won the outstanding contribution to entertainment accolade.

Partying alongside the likes of Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift, Simon joked that he would keep his award in his ‘aircraft hangar’ where he keeps all his awards.

While the judging panel will remain as Simon, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon when BGT returns in April for its ninth series, it hasn’t stopped Katie from talking about what it would be like to be ‘Miss Nasty’ if she was hired for the show.

She recently said: ‘There is a role for a Miss Nasty on any panel. We don’t have any good Miss Nasties at the moment because everyone wants to be sweet like Cheryl Cole.

‘They want to be loved. It would be good to have someone different. There’s absolutely more TV coming up for me.’

Meanwhile could there be a rumoured collaboration between Naomi Campbell and Simon Cowell?

When asked by Elle’s official Facebook page who Naomi would most like to speak to the star of The Face said boldly: ‘Simon Cowell! And I see him over there.’

Look out, Si!
