If it’s showbiz then you can often be familiar with Simon Cowell has carved a niche for himself as a rare creative mind behind some of the biggest most successful reality TV franchise “America’s Got Talent” and “Britain’s Got Talent”. This time he has decided to jack-up the prize money for the eventual winner of the ongoing series in the UK.
Thus Simon Cowell has doubled the ‘Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions’ prize to £100,000.
The 59-year old judge was stunned to learn from hosts Ant and Dec during filming that the all-stars series winner would scoop £50,000 so pledged to boost the fund. Simon said: “Did you just say fifty grand? That’s it?” Ant replied: “That’s it. Unless you want to double it. Do you want to double it?” As the live audience cheered, he replied: Yes, I will. It’s a hundred grand everybody.” And that was just how the score was settled, so it’s more money for the winner of this year’s edition.
