Simon Cowell has given his very frank opinion on whether Katie Hopkins should join the Britain's Got Talent judging panel - he'd rather cut his skin and bathe in vinegar.

Simon was questioned last night about rumours that acid-tongued CBB runner-up Katie might be signing up to the next series of BGT as a judge.

However, speaking at the ELLE Style Awards in London, he 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. So the answer is no."

Ouch. Quite literally!

Simon, who was given the 'Outstanding Contribution To Entertainment' award at the event, has recently finished touring the UK with his fellow BGT judges, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, for the 10th series of the TV talent show.

The foursome are hoping to have found a real gem among the auditionees who had tried their luck, as again the winner will perform at this year's Royal Variety Performance towards the end of the year.

Last week, however, Amanda hinted that she is set to quit BGT following this series.

Speaking at a press conference, Amanda - who has been a judge on the show since the beginning - said: "Ten years is an amazing feat. I would love to make it ten and then call it a day."

Well, if she does quit, we know who Simon won't be employing!
