SHOW supremo Simon Cowell will miss the Britain’s Got Talent semi- finals for the first time.
He will not be there in person due to a clash of filming schedules with the show’s US version caused by Covid-19.
But Simon, 60, is planning to appear via video link from America on the live ITV shows.
He hopes to be able to return for the final in October.
A source said: “Simon is gutted to not be physically there for the semi- finals, but he’ll be there virtually, casting an eye over the talent and imparting his views in every show.
“He can keep an eye on David Walliams to make sure he doesn’t get too big for his boots while Simon is in the States.
“Normally, schedules mean Simon can do both but AGT’s dates haven’t moved while BGT’s have due to coronavirus.”
Simon has been ever-present on BGT since it first came to screens in 2007.
The interrupted series is set to return with a one-off catch-up show.
It will then run semi- finals on Saturday nights during the autumn.
