With the success of Declan Donnelly hosting Saturday Night Takeaway by himself over the weekend it’s been said that Simon Cowell wants to him to host the finals of Britain’s Got Talent all by himself.
Dec who had to host the show by himself on Saturday night went down really well with the viewers and impressed Cowell that much that for the first time he is going to host the live shows of BGT all by himself.
A insider has said:
After last weekend the feeling is very much that Dec should take on BGT alone too – he did a brilliant job.
“The bosses at ITV loved him and want him back on screens as soon as possible, and Simon Cowell totally agrees that he’s the best man for the job rather than bringing in a new face.
They continued to say:
“It was obviously strange for viewers seeing him alone at first, but he took everything in his stride like a total pro. That’s not to say people didn’t miss Ant, but the overwhelming response was that Dec was fantastic solo too.
“It also solves the major headache over continuity issues because so much of the series is already in the bag after the auditions finished.”
