SIMON Cowell was humiliated on tonight’s Britain Got Talent when he became the butt of the joke during ventriloquist Jimmy Tamley’s act.
The music mogul was pulled up with David Walliams for the skit but he was booed by the audience when he stormed off the stage in embarrassment.
The judge was renamed ‘Snuggly Simon’ during the show and looked very unhappy as he was propped on a stool and forced to play a ventriloquist’s doll.
He awkwardly tried to play along for a while but the final straw came when Jimmy asked him to perform a can-can dance.
Simon stormed off stage and was booed by the audience.
He eventually came back and allowed himself to be put in a box with David – and some fans sympathised with his embarrassment.
When the act was over Simon returned to his seat and threatened to murder the producers of the show.
“Why couldn’t you have just used Ant and Dec?” Alesha Dixon asked. “Very awkward, very funny.”
“It’s like you know when your boss is forced at the Christmas party to get up and do some dancing? It felt like that, it was Simon’s worst nightmare but it was very entertaining for the rest of us,” Amanda Holden added.

But Simon failed to see the funny side.
“When the credits roll up later on you’re going to see the names of the producers who made this show,” he said.
“When you hear about them being murdered in two days time… I will admit I am the person.”
David Walliams added: “The funny thing is this is all that Simon Cowell will ever be remembered for.”
