Looks like Amanda Holden is more at home with bad boys, because she's spotted a change in Britain's Got Talent boss Simon Cowell and it's not sitting well with her.

"It's really unnerved me. He's being really nice," Amanda told The Mirror. "I don't like it. It's like, 'Why are you being so nice?' He's wanting to know much more about every single contestant."

Yep, apparently good ol' Uncy Si seems to actually care about his BGT contestants – and not just that, he's taking an interest in Pinterest too.

Amanda explained: "He's delving really deeply into people's personal lives, asking about their motivations, how they feel, how happy they are.

"It's absolutely hysterical, he's talking to me about Pinterest like it's a brand new thing," she added. (We're not sure how this connects to caring about people either.)

In response to the shocking accusations, Simon responded: "I've always been interested in people. It's important to me, even as a head of a label, that I get to know as much as I can in a short space of time. So I do ask a lot of questions."

Aside from all that, Britain's Got Talent is returning to screens this week, and presenters Ant & Dec are rallying the nation in a brand new clip to open this year's series – and it's VERY patriotic.

Britain's Got Talent returns this Saturday (April 15) at 8pm on ITV.
