SIMON Cowell showed off his weight loss as he puffed on a cigarette after the first Britain’s Got Talent auditions.
The 60-year-old has recently lost 20lbs after overhauling his diet but couldn’t help having a crafty smoke as he left the London Palladium Theatre on Saturday night.
Simon showed off his tan from his annual Christmas break in Barbados as well as his weight loss in his trademark light blue jeans and grey T-shirt.
The music mogul obviously wasn’t feeling the cold after returning to the UK as he went without a coat and beamed for the cameras as he climbed into his waiting car, cigarette in mouth.
Earlier, Simon had reunited with his fellow judges Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams as well as host Ant and Dec for the first auditions of 2020.
The group posed for a picture which Amanda, 48, posted on her Instagram alongside the caption: “Great first day. So lovely to be back @bgt . @dwalliams Nearly made the cut.”
Amanda also shared a snap with Alesha, 41, and David, 48, and wrote: “Back together again.”
Meanwhile Ant and Dec shared a cheeky picture of them sitting at their dressing room mirrors pulling funny faces for the camera to catch their reflections.
They captioned it simply: “Day 1 at #BGT Auditions 2020.”
The Geordie duo also shaerd a picture from backstage of them watching the Newcastle United football match on one of their mobile phones between auditions.
They wrote: “Managed to keep one eye on the footy at #BGT today. Glad we did! #NUFC.”
After a busy first day, Ant, 44, was seen leaving the theatre with a big smile on his face, while Amanda was also seen making her exit dressed casually in a grey off the shoulder and matching tracksuit bottoms.
