Simon Cowell returning to Britain's Got Talent

Simon Cowell is officially returning for the 2013 series of Britain's Got Talent.

The music mogul admits he loved the new line-up of judges - David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon, and had no hesitation in signing up for another season.

He says, "I loved doing the show... the new panel worked really well and I'm very happy they have all agreed to come back.

"Last year was a special year for talent and I hope that in 2013, off the back of an amazing year for Britain, we find another global star."

Comedian Walliams joked, "My Simon and I are going to be together again. I'm delighted to confirm I will be a judge on Britain's Got Talent again next year. I am so happy I could cry."

Ashleigh and her dog Pudsey became the first animal act to win the ITV talent show in the latest series, and hosts Ant and Dec can't wait to see what the 2013 contestants have to offer.

Dec says, "Simon was the happiest I have ever seen him when Ashleigh and Pudsey won! I'm not sure we'll ever see him as happy again – so that's the challenge Great Britain, show us what you've got!"

Ant adds: "You think you've seen it all then a man with a saucepan on his head turns up! We can't wait to see who or what turns up this time."
