After much speculation (that being a solitary news piece), Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan's replacements have been revealed as Michael McIntyre (bad news for David Walliams) and *drum roll* The Hoff. Whatever could go wrong?
In light of the news, the British born humanoid version of ALF said: "I'm a massive fan of 'Britain's Got Talent' and am extremely excited to be a judge on the new series. I was so thrilled when Simon Cowell asked me that I immediately wanted to run in to Ant and Dec's arms to celebrate!" In a hetero way.
The Director of ITV's Entertainment and Comedy department, added: "Michael has established himself as one of the biggest names in comedy and entertainment in this country and, as someone who made his big breakthrough on the Royal Variety Performance, he knows exactly the pressures facing the acts on 'Britain's Got Talent'... As an actor, singer and producer, David Hasselhoff has been immersed in show business (and the contents of mini bars) for many years. Alongside Michael, Amanda and of course Simon Cowell, he is a great addition to the judging panel for 2011."
And that's why he was let go from America's Got Talent, not because he's a total booze hound.
In case you're questioning Simon Cowell's inclusion in the judging panel, well, as it turns out, he just couldn't stay away entirely. He'll be putting in an appearance on the judging panel during the Live Finals.
