Aug. 26 (UPI) -- Ashley Banjo is filling in for injured judge Simon Cowell during the Britain's Got Talent semi-finals, which are slated to begin taping next week, ITV announced.
"Ashley will be a fantastic addition to the panel. He knows the power of the show; and the responsibility of it. I couldn't think of a better person to sit in my seat whilst I follow doctor's orders. I hate that stupid bike!" Cowell said in a statement Tuesday.
