Amanda Holden said her friend and Britain’s Got Talent boss Simon Cowell’s weight loss “are crazy.”
Speaking before the launch of the new ITV series this weekend, Amanda admitted that Simon’s 20 pound weight loss was hard to miss.
The music and television mogul has lost impressive weight after adopting a healthier vegan lifestyle last year, and Amanda is also hoping for other big changes in her boyfriend.

“It’s crazy because when you see someone all the time, you don’t really notice when they gain weight,” she said.
“With Simon, it was such a progressive thing, but I immediately noticed that he had lost weight. We finished the auditions last year, then we met two weeks later for the deliberations and I said right away, “Okay, what are you doing, because you have the looks amazing! ” “
“He said what he started doing, the food he cut and how it made such a difference in just two weeks. So, I just feel happy for him. ‘
She added that she hoped that with the new look, Simon would return to his famous character from Mr Nasty TV. “I hope that means he becomes more evil again, because I think he has become a little soft,” she said.

“Now that he’s back to his thinner self, I think he’s going to be Mr. Nasty again!” Which I really pray for, because that’s what I love. I badly love Simon the best of all!
Simon’s new healthy diet, however, comes at a cost, as Amanda also said he skipped his post-show dinners.
“I loved having our dinners together. It was part of our conversation on the panel, “complained the star. “We are sort of looking at the clock, and when we know the last two people are coming, we say to ourselves, ‘Oh, what do you have for your tea?’ And he said, “It’s not tea, honey. It’s dinner! “”
“Then we would have fish and chips or beans on toast, things like that. But this new healthy diet works for him because he has a spring in his step, he has recovered his mojo!

Last year Simon told the Ellen DeGeneres Show that his weight loss was inspired by his doctor waking up, as he admitted, “I went to see this doctor in London. We did some tests. And then a month later, he said, “You have the worst diet I have ever encountered on the part of a patient. “
“So I went,” Okay, apart from smoking, drinking and diet, what should I give up? And he said, “The diet. So I said, “I’m in it! “
“It was easier than I thought, and it was partly thanks to Eric. I realized that if I didn’t cope physically, I wouldn’t be able to catch up.
“Because the minute he gets up until the minute he falls asleep … their energy, you forget, at five, is phenomenal.
Simon had previously stated that he named his diet the Eric Cowell diet in honor of his son because the boy likes to eat raw vegetables.
Britain’s Got Talent returns to ITV on Saturday April 11 at 8 p.m.
