Simon Cowell's U.K. 'Talent' dumps new fourth judge after one week


UPI News Service, 01/20/2009 

A spokeswoman for "Britain's Got Talent" says it was a mistake adding a fourth panelist, so new judge Kelly Brook is leaving the show.

The model/actress last week joined judges Amanda Holden, Piers Morgan and Simon Cowell on the TV competition series.

"The format of the show is cleaner and less complicated with just three judges, which was not fully appreciated ahead of filming," a spokeswoman for the production company TalkbackThames said in a statement posted on the show's Web site Tuesday. "Producers reviewed the tapes over the weekend and although Kelly brings a huge amount of warmth to the show and we've loved having her on board, the complications it adds to the filming process and format of the show means that unfortunately, and with huge regret, we have agreed with ITV not to proceed with a fourth judge."

"I have genuinely enjoyed working with Kelly. She is absolutely lovely and a complete professional," added Cowell. "But it's become clear the format doesn't support another judge and we will never add a fourth judge to the panel."
