Simon Cowell’s son Eric appears keen to audition for next season of Britain’s Got Talent, according to his music mogul father.

The 63-year-old BGT judge announced that his youngest son plans to showcase his singing talent and enter the audition when the show returns next year.

Simon admits it will be the “toughest” part of his career so far, describing the upcoming audition as his “torture”.

“He decided to audition for Britain’s Got Talent,” he told The Sun.

“It’s going to be total torture.” I mean, of all the things I’ve ever done, it’s probably the hardest.

In addition to leading his successful Got Talent series, Simon remains at the top of his game in the music industry.

The Daily Mail’s Alison Boshoff revealed last week that Simon is actively planning a new band following the success of his previous bands One Direction, Little Mix and (in the US) Fifth Harmony. band.

Simon hopes to hit it big again in the music business, and he’s talking to scouts to find his next big thing.

A source close to Simon said cryptically, “Something is about to happen and is very different from what has been seen so far, and yes, it may require a new team.”

It’s a surprising development, considering that TV talent shows no longer have the appeal they once did (The X Factor aired in the UK in 2018 after 15 episodes).

Simon also severed all ties with his music label Syco (later closed) in 2022. But he’s clearly still actively working on his music career.
