David Walliams has revealed Simon Cowell still munches special carrots from Singapore when he's filming 'Britain's Got Talent'

Simon Cowell still has "special carrots" flown in for him to munch on the set of 'Britain's Got Talent'.

Fellow 'BGT' judge David Walliams has revealed the 54-year-old music mogul is once again insisting on having a constant supply of organic carrots flown in specially from Singapore for him to nibble on whenever he is filming,

Meanwhile, David and the other judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon have to settle for "normal" vegetables to keep their hunger at bay.

When quizzed on what's in Simon's dressing room, David said: "Simon's got his menthol cigarettes and he's got special carrots - we have normal carrots, but he has special carrots, they're like organic carrots and they've got bits of green on the end like Bugs Bunny's.

"And he's got a really disgusting mouthwash, which I've actually tasted, and it makes your breath a lot worse than it was before."

David, 42, also joked that Simon has become more "cocky" after having his first child, baby Eric, with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman.

He quipped: "Simon's ego gets worse every year! This year was the hardest because he was showing off a lot, because he got a woman pregnant. He managed to impregnate somebody and we were all shocked, and he was very cocky about the whole thing. He was really, really cocky this year and he wouldn't take any of my lip!"

'Britain's Got More Talent' host Stephen Mulhern let slip Simon's acquired taste for the special carrots last year.

Simon, 54, insists on only eating the orange vegetables from Singapore because he thinks they are good for his skin and general health.
