Kelly Brook on Simon Cowell: We're not friends, he used me as photo op

By
Kelly Brook has said that she still does not know what happened when she was axed from Britain's Got Talent after less than a week on the panel in 2009.

The glamour model also told FHM that she and Simon Cowell were not on good terms, despite being photographed with him after her exit.

"I don't know! I still don't know," Brook told film co-star Keith Lemon when asked what happened with her exit.

"I saw Simon Cowell once afterwards. I caught his eye and I thought, 'I'm not going to say hello to him, I can't be bothered', and then he kind of just sulked over and sat next to me.

"Then all of the photographers came and then they took a picture as if we were friends. We're not friends. I didn't know him before and I'll probably never meet him again."

She added: "I don't understand why he sat next to me for a photo opportunity. I don't know. It was weird.

"They're all weird. I've been in the business for 15 years. I turn up and I do my job. I'm professional and if I'm not comfortable, I'm honest, I'm really straightforward.

"If it was editing, if it was bad, they could have edited it to make me look good... They said 'be yourself', and I was, and then they fired me!"

After Brook was axed from the show, Cowell claimed that she was "incredible about the whole thing" and "really understanding", adding that he took responsibility for the situation.

"We've spoken since and we're planning to meet up in LA," he claimed at the time. "She's a really nice girl."

Show hosts Ant & Dec said that while they did not ask for Brook to be fired, it was "completely true [they] were annoyed that she'd been brought in" because they had not been informed about the decision to hire her.

They later said that Brook had never watched the show and was unfamiliar with the format.

The full interview appears in this month's FHM and Keith Lemon appears on the cover of FHM Collections, free with this month's issue, on sale now (Thursday). For exclusive behind the scenes video visit FHM.
