He explained: ‘I would love to say he is, but I believe he’s up against Alan Carr as well so I think they’re juggling and they’re going to save it as a surprise, so I in fact don’t know.

‘And Bruno is very secretive with me, darling, so he will never be honest with me or tell me the truth. So I really don’t know.

‘But I would love to see Bruno back on our screens and I think it’s a great position to have so I wish him all the very best if he is in the running for it because I think it’d be wonderful to get that energy back on the telly.’

Earlier this week, it was reported Bruno had beaten Alan Carr to the judging role.

The news comes after it was believed that comedian Alan Carr, 46, was set to step into David’s shoes and join the panel.

He said: 'I would love to see Bruno back on our screens and I think it’s a great position to have so I wish him all the very best if he is in the running for it because I think he’d be wonderful'

According to The Mirror, both Bruno and Simon are ‘thrilled’ by the signing, with the Italian choreographer’s appointment set to be made official in the coming days.

A source told the publication: ‘Bruno has all the right experience and his famous exuberance will go down a treat. He and Simon have long hoped to work together so this has proved the perfect opportunity. Everyone’s very excited.’

Meanwhile, The Sun reports that Bruno was show boss Simon’s preferred choice over Alan, with producers recently happening out an alleged six-figure deal for the star.

A source said: ‘For almost two months Alan may have been the favourite to take over from David, but Bruno was always Simon’s preferred choice.

‘Not only does he have years of judging experience under his belt from his time on Strictly he will bring an outrageous brand of comedy that BGT needs on the panel.

‘In so many ways this is already the perfect job for Bruno as it sees him return to a glitzy showbusiness favourite that fits in with the rest of his work.’

They added that the following a period of ‘intense negotiations’, and agreement has been reached that will see Bruno make a comeback to prime time Saturday night TV following his Strictly exit.

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Bruno and Britain’s Got Talent for comment.
