Cowell reveals his kinder side on BGT

Simon Cowell gives everyone a card and Champagne before the first and last live show of 'Britain's Got Talent'.

Stephen Mulhern has revealed the music mogul gives gifts to workers on the TV talent show, complete with a "handwritten" note of thanks.

He told The Sun newspaper's TV Magazine: "He always sends everyone a good-luck card and a bottle of Champagne before the first live show, and after the final a handwritten 'thank you' with a big 'S' and little 'i'."

The 'Britain's Got More Talent' host - who has smelt Simon and his fellow judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams - also claimed the show's boss has a scent of "money".

He said: "David smells crisp - he's meticulous when it comes to his appearances.

"Alesha is fruity, Amanda smells sweet and Simon ... he just smells of money."

Amanda recently joked the show's boss and David are the real parents of the comedian's baby - with wife Lara Stone - because of their on-screen bromance.

She laughed: "I said he looks more like Simon. They're going to make brilliant dads. I think they put it all in a test tube, gave it a little shake and Lara took it.

"Simon has been fighting David but behind closed doors they love each other. Simon tries really hard to fight it but he has given in to 'The David'.

"I like watching it. They don't have many real men friends in real life. So I think what has happened they have ended up being good friends."
