Cowell was reported to have collapsed after telling fellow panellists Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams that he felt “weird” after meeting the dog at auditions in Manchester.
“It hypnotised some members of the audience and made them think we were naked,” Dec reportedly told The Sun. “One of them said I had a tiny willy and another woman said she was disgusted and will never let children watch us on television again.”
The secrets to the dog’s magic powers remain unknown, as does whether or not his female owner will be bringing him to the live shows.
Cowell is a big fan of the animal acts and we expect the dog left him little option but to steer well clear of his red buzzer.
Britain’s Got Talent returns to ITV this spring.
