Simon Cowell thinks Eric has a bright future as a judge
Simon Cowell thinks his son Eric will follow in his footsteps as a talent show judge.
Simon has been taking Eric along to the BGT auditions this year.
"He does enjoy coming down to auditions," Simon said. "The first time I brought him to Britain’s Got Talent he thought it was scary because of the big red Xs, but then after a few months I said, ‘What does Daddy do when he goes to work?’ and he said I pressed buttons - it’s a little more than that!
"Now, he understands the show so I watch him and I’m like, ‘Eric do you like it? Don’t you like it?’
"He’s got a really good eye and ear for it, so yes, he’s going to be doing this one day."
Simon doesn't usually like it when judges David Walliams, Amanda Holden or Alesha Dixon disagree with him, but it seems he's prepared to make an exception for Eric who is allowed to object to his dad's opinions as much as he wants.
"Of course he disagrees with me," Simon says. "He's so funny though, he cracks me up!"
Amanda agrees "I think he’s got an eye for talent and a great sense of humour," she says."He’s very cute; as soon as he arrives in the room I’m all over him and he runs a mile!
Rightly so because he knows me, but he doesn’t know me that well. I’m like, ‘Give me a kiss Eric!’ and he’s like, ‘No!’. That’s right, he should be like that. It’s just like Simon, he runs a mile from me as well."
