Former deputy leader of the Labour party, John Prescott has reportedly offered his support to Simon Cowell after he was targeted with eggs by a perfomer on the Britain's Got Talent final last night.
Mr Prescott apparently tweeted "@SimonCowell I'm here if you need to talk", which has caused much mirth on the social media website, and has been repeatedly retweeted although now removed.
The former MP suffered a similar fate in 2001 when he reacted by punching the egg throwing protester during a visit to Rhyl in north Wales.
