When presenter Stephen Mulhern asks the music mogul what he’d be doing if he wasn’t in entertainment, Simon responds, ‘I would breed racehorses, I would do it full time.’
Never one to miss a joke, fellow judge David Walliams pipes in, ‘He’s not in entertainment; he just sits there telling people they can’t sing. Anyone could do that!’
Simon already owns a racehorse, which he bought back in January with BGT presenters Ant and Dec – maybe he’s planning to retire early!
