Simon pranks Amanda - on air!

Simon Cowell gave Amanda Holden the shock of her life when he called her up and told her she was being replaced on BGT - by Cheryl Fernadez-Versini.

The head Judge duped Amanda on this morning's Radio 1 breakfast show as part of host Nick Grimshaw's feature Call or Delete.

Telling Amanda, "I'm thinking of shaking things up on the live shows," he informed his flabbergasted fellow Judge that Chezza would be taking her place on a couple of nights.

Amanda kept her cool right and took it like a true pro, saying"If that's what you think is best, then that's fine.

But when Simon suggested she give Cheryl notes, he was forced to reveal the gag!

And he was still covering his back on Twitter ahead of the conversation being aired this morning.

Will Amanda get her own back? Tune into the brand new series of BGT from this Saturday at 8pm to find out.
