Simon Cowell is always playing pranks on his fellow 'Britain's Got Talent' judges.
The 52-year-old music mogul - who sits on the panel of the ITV1 show with Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams - likes to wind everyone up and once told Amanda an overweight contestant was pregnant so she went and congratulated her.
Amanda said: "Simon's always playing pranks on me but the most memorable one involved a contestant. Just before she came on stage, Simon whispered in my ear that she was pregnant.
"Naturally, I congratulated her and it turned out she wasn't and it was one of Simon's fibs! I was terribly embarrassed."
Amanda - who recently gave birth to second daughter, Hollie - also revealed Simon gets bored easily during the auditions and invents games to make things more fun.
She added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "Simon loves to play word games during the auditions.
"This usually involves us having to get random words like 'moray eel' or 'banana flan' into a sentence when giving our opinion of an act. It provides some rather awkward moments."
