Britain’s Got Talent judges Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden look dramatically different in 12-year throwback

They've changed so much!

| Updated:

Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden looked totally different in old footage from Britain’s Got Talent aired on Good Morning Britain.

Today’s (30.08.19) episode of GMB featured a clip of the talent competition 12 years ago, when former mobile phone salesman Paul Potts blew the judges, audience and viewers away with his incredible singing voice.

Simon and Amanda, then aged 47 and 36 respectively, sported dramatically different looks in comparison to how they appear today.

Amanda had dark hair pulled back from her face instead of the trademark blonde locks she has these days.

Simon also looked completely different – particularly as he recently shed a lot of weight by making some simple changes to his lifestyle.

Earlier this month, his pal Sinitta revealed the moment she inspired the music mogul to get into shape after X Factor wrapped filming last year.

Speaking on Lorraine, she explained: “I was kissing [Simon] goodbye and saying thank you, and as I said bye I whispered in his ear, ‘Baby, I’m really sorry to say this but… I love you so much, and I’ve got to do this’.

“‘You’re too handsome, you’re too fabulous, to let yourself go like this’.”

The singer said she had her arms around him as they were hugging, and she “just kind of grabbed him a little bit around the love handles and the waist, and his little cheeks”.

Simon’s weight loss has been so transformative that he’s even had to deny having a gastric band fitted.

He told Best magazine: “People have said: ‘Oh, he’s had a gastric band fitted’- but I haven’t. If I had, I would admit to it. This diet is all about what you put into your body.”

Amanda, meanwhile, regularly stuns fans with snaps of her bikini body on social media.

And she lives a healthy lifestyle, never shying away from a detox when she feels she needs it.

Earlier this year, she posted enviable pics from a trip abroad – including one that showed off her figure in a white latticed swimsuit as she stood looking out onto a beautiful sea view.

The mum of two told fans she was on a detox retreat and had been drinking juices for a health kick.

Both Simon and Amanda are back on our screens this weekend (31.08.19).

The pair are due to feature alongside fellow Britain’s Got Talent judges David Walliams and Alesha Dixon for the launch of the programme’s new iteration, BGT: The Champions.
