BRITAIN’S Got Talent ventriloquist Steve Hewlett ditched his Simon Cowell puppet from his act – because the doll no longer looks like him.
The artist moaned that he was forced to make vital changes after Simon lost weight and transformed his face – again.
Steve won the wild card for the BGT Finals in the 2013 series after wowing viewers by producing a Simon puppet and a vine-leaf clad Sinitta.
He eventually finished fourth on the show, but writing on Facebook last week he said: “I wish these celebrities would stop changing faces, I had to ditch the last model in the 1990s because of that …
“Now I have excluded Mr. Cowell from the act!” “
Simon will be 60 next month, but he’s turned his back on the years.
The previously chubby X Factor boss recently lost weight with a vegan diet, exercise, and cutting back on alcohol.
But Dad’s smooth skin and outstretched neck also seem to have been helped over the years.
In 2002, Simon sported a very natural face and smile.
In 2004, he appeared to have started using Botox with injections into his forehead.
In 2006, it appears that more Botox was applied around his eyes.
It is believed that he then switched to dermal fillers around his nose and mouth in 2008.
The then-50-year-old man gave himself a Botox eyebrow and a new set of veneers in 2009.
Meanwhile, Simon developed a more chiseled look in 2013 that could have been due to the jaw fillings.
The swollen appearance of the X Factor boss in 2012 could be due to collagen-boosting injections.
Simon let go in 2018 but was probably still using Botox.
The TV regular seems to have treated himself to new teeth, more Botox, and maybe a neck lift this year.
