Simon Cowell had to sit on cushions to make him look tall enough for his new show, reports ViP.
Simon - 5ft 9in - was filming Britain's Got Talent, when producers told him that he looked too short next to judges Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden.
A source at the auditions said, "Poor Simon looked a bit mortified"
"He was really embarrassed when they fetched two large cushions for him to sit on. Piers is over 6ft and Amanda is tall for a woman so poor Simon just looked too short in comparison."
