If there’s one thing everyone knows about Simon Cowell, other than his penchant for weirdly high-waisted trousers, it’s that he loves dogs.
And during a recent episode of Britain’s Got Talent’s companion show, Cowell was faced with terrified little puppies and he wasn’t happy about it.
The puppies were part of a quiz hosted by Stephen Mulhern, that involved BGT-related questions with adorable little puppies a prizes. However, the little Dalmatian looked terrified – probably by the large audience and new environment. Or, you know, the close proximity to Simon’s chest hair.
Simon quickly ditched the quiz when he realised how terrified his puppy was and got up to return him/her to his owner and put him in his carrier. He was reportedly heard telling production staff:They shouldnt be doing this.
And then allegedly spent some time with the owners making sure the puppies were well looked after and admitting that they should be taken home.
Mulhern went on to apologize later in the show for the use of the puppies, saying:
‘Very quickly, I just want to apologise if we upset anybody with the puppies. Obviously that was not our intention in any shape or form.
So if we have upset you in any way I do apologise on behalf of Britains Got More Talent.
And fans praised Simon for his actions:
Here’s a clip of the quiz and apology:
