Britain's Got Talent's Simon Cowell has confused fans after revealing a new talent show idea.
The 59-year-old TV judge and producer, who has successfully set up talent show franchises across the globe, has announced he's expanding to the one place he's never done one – Antarctica.
Yep, you read that right. Check out Simon's tweet below:
I’ve set up talent shows all over the world. But until now, one place was missing. I am very excited to tell you that we are finally expanding into Antarctica… #TakeTheStageAntarctica #Ad pic.twitter.com/cgb9T4dUex- Simon Cowell (@SimonCowell) April 22, 2019
Taking to Twitter, Simon wrote: "I've set up talent shows all over the world. But until now, one place was missing. I am very excited to tell you that we are finally expanding into Antarctica…"
What kind of show Simon could possibly produce on a continent which is pretty much an ice-covered landmass?! Fear not – the entrepreneur's tweet makes it clear it's just an advert.
However, his Twitter post baffled a number of fans on social media, who've come up with some hilarious scenarios and ideas.
Ermm, okaaay! Please get the Antarctic Monkeys on as your first guests! :D- Raven (@Raven1464) April 22, 2019

Can’t wait to watch a penguin sing the greatest showman- Rob Anderson (@MrRAnderson78) April 22, 2019
The population in the summertime in Antarctica is about 200 scientists. Hopefully they sing, too? 🤣🤷🏼♀️- Shannon ⭐️ (@sspring211) April 22, 2019
Im so confused... but if watching this show means I get to see cute penguins and seals I’m down to watch it- Sammie (@SammieCoughlin) April 22, 2019
"I'm so confused... but if watching this show means I get to see cute penguins and seals I'm down to watch it," wrote one follower.
While another one added: "Can't wait to watch a penguin sing the greatest showman."
In Britain's Got Talent's most recent episode (April 20), viewers saw the television producer pull off a pretty dangerous stunt when Simon decided to take the place of Andrei Gomonov's partner on stage, allowing knives to be thrown at him.
After the stunt, Andrei confessed he was worried about Simon's safety, because he didn't know if he'd suddenly move.
"This was high stakes. It was more dangerous because I didn't know what Simon would do," the contestant said. "I know my partner. She knows not to be scared and not to move.
"But I didn't know if Simon might move. I worried I might leave him seriously injured. I had small nerves. I'm a professional, I must be ready and keep my focus."
Britain's Got Talent airs on ITV.
