    But he didn’t stop there. As he stood outside of the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in LA, Simon was quick to reveal his crown as Mr Nasty was slipping.

    After witnessing Britney’s constant put downs he added: ‘And everybody thinks I’m the mean one?’

    And when the show’s judges weren’t bad mouthing each other they decided to get their hands dirty.
