  • Kelly Brook blames two-faced Ant & Dec for her Britain's Got Talent axe

    In her first newspaper interview since leaving Britain’s Got Talent, British starlet Kelly Brook has opened up about being axed from the show.

    Just six days into the filming the new series, Kelly was removed from the judging panel.

    At the time, reports suggested that it was Simon Cowell who sent the star home, after deciding the new format wasn’t working.

    But now Kelly has revealed she was dumped after upsetting presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

    ‘There was nothing I could do in this country after Britain’s Got Talent,’ she said. ‘The people at ITV were telling me that I had upset Ant and Dec and that was it.

    I would love to have stayed on the show. I really felt it was working out. Ant and Dec had never been anything but pleasant to my face but, clearly, they didn’t want me on the show.’

    Previously, Ant and Dec talked about the incident in their autobiography, telling of how Kelly turned up on her first day never having watched Britain’s Got Talent, even asking what they did on the show.

    The event doesn’t seem to have affected Kelly’s career too badly, though.

    The TV beauty is poised to take over Jerry Hall’s role when she leaves the West End production of Calendar Girls in November.
