Katie Hopkins to join judging panel of your favourite show

Be afraid. Be very, very afraid…

Britain’s Got Talent will never be the same again if this news is anything to go by.

It has been rumoured that Katie Hopkins may be joining the judging panel of the talent show, replacing Simon Cowell when he decides to leave – yikes!

Simon spoke recently about retiring, saying that he ‘can’t go on forever’: “I’ll do a couple more years, sure. I enjoy the shows. But I will retire.”

Now, it would appear that Katie, who is notorious for her cruel and mean remarks about pretty much everybody, could be tipped to replace the straight-talking music mogul. Speaking about her role, she said: “There is a role for a Miss Nasty on any panel. We don’t have any good Miss Nasties at the moment because everyone wants to be sweet like Cheryl Cole. They want to be loved. It would be good to have someone different. There’s absolutely more TV coming up for me.”

As she has appeared on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and Celebrity Big Brother last year and this year alone, perhaps the idea of Katie taking Simon's seat isn't as far-fetched as it seems. Making it a far more terrifying prospect that once though…
