Kelly Brook will still receive £100,000 pay-off for Britain's Got Talent
Kelly Brook will receive a whopping £100,000 payout for being a Britain’s Got Talent judge – even though she was given the boot after just six days of filming.
The 29-year-old was hired only last week to join Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan as a fourth judge on the ITV1 show.
But she was sacked just six days later when co-producer Cowell said it had become clear the show’s format did not work with a fourth judge.
Inside sources told the Daily Mail that Brook struggled to keep up with the wit of Morgan and Cowell, and wasn’t relaxed enough in her new role.
But, despite the massive pay packet, Kelly is said to be none too pleased about the whole thing.
A source told The Sun: ‘Kelly is so upset.
‘Yes, she started off a bit shaky but she was getting better towards the end of the auditions. Kelly has been treated shabbily.’
Simon insists he enjoyed working with Kelly, saying she was dignified upon receiving the news.
‘I spoke to Kelly and she was gracious and understood. I have genuinely enjoyed working with Kelly.’
