Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden branded 'wax works' in latest Britain's Got Talent snap

Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden have been branded 'wax works' in the latest snap from Britain's Got Talent.

The duo, along with David Walliams and Alesha Dixon, have reunited to serve on the judging panel for this year’s series of the ITV talent show, which was postponed last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Funnyman David shared a snap of the foursome back together again, as they marked the end of auditions at the London Palladium.

“Your judges. @bgt @simoncowell @noholdenback @aleshaofficial,” David captioned the snap.

In the behind-the-scenes photo, David is standing alongside Simon, Amanda and Alesha, as the smile at the camera.

David looks dapper in a brown suit teamed with a blue shirt, while TV mogul Simon rocks a more casual ensemble, with a dark grey zip up jacket paired with black jeans.

Amanda looked sensational in a pink latex mini dress, while Alesha wowed in a pair of daring cut-out trousers teamed with a sequinned triangle bikini top.

However, some of David’s followers were mystified by Simon and Amanda’s expressions, suggesting that they looked as plastic as the judge’s dress.

“Are they made of wax?” one wrote. “I genuinely thought that was a wax work!” another quipped.

“Turn the lights down, Simon's melting,” one joked.

“I thought you’d popped to Madame Tussauds,” a follower added, while another agreed: “Are these wax works? I can’t tell.”

“Can see why David posted this, he’s the only one who looks good,” a fan commented alongside laughing face emojis, as one wrote: “What happen to your Simon? Is he smiling or got wind?”

Some of David’s followers were concerned about Simon’s smooth complexion and wrinkle-free face, as he looked dramatically different from the last series of Britain's Got Talent.

“What the hell has Simon done to his face,” one asked.

“Simon's starting to not look like Simon anymore,” a fan added, as one wrote: “Literally looks like a botox/plastic convention.”

Amanda shared a similar picture on her own Instagram page, and said she had “friends for life” in her fellow judges.

“Ten days of @bgt auditions complete I love this show and these three are friends for life,” she sweetly captioned the snap.

But her followers also expressed concern over Simon’s face, as his eyes and cheeks looked swollen.

“Is that Simon Cowell, or a stand in??” one asked.
