Simon Cowell looked strikingly different when he walked the red carpet at the official Britain’s Got Talent launch at the London Palladium on Friday. 

He wore a pair of round sunglasses as he paused for pictures and continued to showcase his slim physique after adopting a healthier lifestyle. 

Keeping out the cold, Simon, 63, wore two blue T-shirts pulled down tight over his trademark high-waisted black trousers.

And he added some height to his frame with slightly heeled smart shoes.

He was in good company on the day as he arrived at the iconic London venue, three days after ITV started filming the auditions there. 

Simon was joined by new judge Bruno Tonioli, Amanda Holden and Alesha DIxon.

Alesha looked incredible wearing a black leather biker gown which suited her perfectly, as well as a pair of matching thigh-high boots. 

And Amanda was wearing the same blue suit jacket she wore on Tuesday for continuity purposes, as well as a pair of black platform heels. 

Hosts Ant and Dec were also seen making a playful arrival on the red carpet.

Meanwhile, new judge  is believed to have joked that he was ‘told off’ during his first day filming for the Britain’s Got Talent auditions on Tuesday.

The 67-year-old had an eventful first day at the London Palladium after taking on his new job as he pushed the golden buzzer too early for one act.

And Bruno reportedly turned to the audience to joke that he had already been ‘told off’ as he gushed over how much he was enjoying being a judge already.

Alesha – who joins him on the panel with Simon and Amanda – reportedly had to rein in Bruno as he became overexcited during the auditions.

According to The Sun, Bruno told the audience: ‘I’ve had so much fun, I’ve already been told off. I’m loving it!’

It was claimed Bruno had to be rapped on the knuckles after he couldn’t help but jump to his feet during filming, with Alesha, 44, reportedly telling him to sit down.

Bruno appeared to be just as thrilled after filming on Wednesday as he flashed a massive grin while leaving the London Palladium after the second day of auditions.

During the first day of filming, Bruno created some trouble when he pushed the golden buzzer too early, warm-up act Adam Khan reported.

They said Bruno had pressed the Golden Buzzer too early to avoid being beaten to the chase by Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon, and so had pressed it during the act.

As a result, the moment had to be recorded all over again so that the cameras could be set up properly.

Adam tweeted: ‘So… I just witnessed #BGT history!!! An act came on… it was pretty clear Alesha and Simon both wanted to press the#GoldenBuzzer…

‘So Bruno beat them to it and pressed it *during the act*! They were performing with confetti falling on them and the BGT theme playing in the back!’

‘We now have to re-record the #GoldenBuzzer moment because no cameras were properly in place as nobody expected it to happen during the act.’
