Simon Cowell tries to outdo Alesha Dixon's Britain's Got Talent entrance

Simon Cowell pulled out all the stops to outdo fellow judge Alesha Dixon's entrance as Britain's Got Talent kicked off its eleventh series earlier today (15 January).

Filming has begun in Liverpool for the brand new series of the talent competition and arriving at the Liverpool Empire, Alesha stole the show thanks to her edgy new' do.

She's ditched her shoulder-grazing tresses for a razor sharp, platinum bob cut, but Simon wasn't going to let her steal the limelight away from him that easily...

Of course, the music mogul arrived fashionably late as auditions began and wanting to make an entrance of his own, Simon roped in the help of David Walliams and his err... band.

Although looking at the pictures, we've got a funny feeling Simon might not have known he was going to have company on the red carpet. Maybe it was David trying to steal the show, instead?

After all, Alesha did beat him to bag the Lip Sync Battle UK title recently, didn't she?

As Simon made his way inside the venue (dressed oh-so-cooly in head-to-toe black), he met David in fancy dress holding a trombone and accompanied by his bandmates.

Clearly finding the whole spectacle amusing, Simon couldn't resist flashing his pearly whites as he laughed at his pal. And he was a good sport, stopping for a quick snap with them all.

This will be Simon's tenth year as judge on Britain's Got Talent, as the 56-year-old has been present on the judging panel since it first aired back in 2007.

He, David, Alesha and Amanda Holden are all back for the show this time round - their place on the panel was confirmed back in September last year.

Like Simon, this will be Amanda's tenth turn on the talent show. She had hinted her tenth could be her last, admitting it would be the perfect time to hang up her boots.

She said: "Ten years is an amazing feat. I would love to make it ten and then call it a day."

Meanwhile, for David and Alesha, this will be their fifth series.
