Simon Cowell's son thinks he presses buzzers for living
Simon Cowell's son thinks he presses buzzers for a living.
The 56-year-old show boss has admitted little Eric, two, has noticed he spends a large proportion of his time slamming big buttons to boot contestants off the stage on 'Britain's Got Talent' and believes that's all his globe-trotting career entails.
He's quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "He said, 'You press buzzers.' I told Eric there's a little more to my job than pushing buttons but OK. He finds the acts very funny, he's got a great sense of humour and I love him."
The music mogul quite often takes Eric, whom he has with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, with him when he films for shows like 'BGT' or the US version, 'America's Got Talent' because he hopes one day he'll take over from his duties.
He explained: "I am bringing him down basically to say in a few years' time you'll hopefully be doing what daddy is doing. I'm doing it to get him used to it."
And Eric has already started to show signs he's got a good eye for terrible acts as he reaches for the television remote and switches the box off if someone fails to impress him.
