Simon Cowell has recently announced that the entire America’s Got Talent judge panel has been tested for Coronavirus. Ever since Heidi Klum developed symptoms of the virus, whilst on the set of America’s Got Talent, the entire panel decided to get tested.
“We all got tested, we had to,” says Simon Cowell
Whilst we’re still unsure of the results, Simon Cowell has admitted, whilst shopping in Malibu, that the entire America’s Got Talent judge panel has been tested for Coronavirus. “We all got tested, we had to,” says Simon when asked to give an update. This comes after Heidi Klum reportedly left the set of the show after witnessing certain symptoms of the virus. Just days later, the entire production of America’s Got Talent was halted to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
10 days after getting tested, Klum confirmed that she didn’t have the virus on Instagram, to her 7.2 million followers.
Cowell seemed in high spirits, however, whilst being interviewed in the parking lot of a supermarket, wearing a mask. On several occasions over the past week, Simon has made sure his entire family wears masks on outings.
Simon Cowell gives an update on ‘AGT’ and ‘BGT’
Simon also took the time to give an update on the two upcoming seasons of America’s Got Talent and Britain’s Got Talent: “I reckon if everything is okay, we should be filming again, end of July. The audition shows in the UK start next week and then in the US, the last week in May”.
“I want to get it out as quickly as possible,” continues Cowell. “While people are stuck at home, they’ve got nothing to watch. I don’t want to sit on this material, it would be crazy”.
Britain’s Got Talent begins this Saturday on ITV at 8pm for the first episode of auditions.
