Simon Cowell insists Katie Hopkins will never get a job on 'Britain's Got Talent' and he would rather "cut" himself "a thousand times" in a bath of "vinegar" than work with the 'Celebrity Big Brother' runner-up

Simon Cowell would rather "cut" himself "a thousand times" in a bath of "vinegar" than work with Katie Hopkins.

The 55-year-old music mogul has utterly refuted suggestions the acid-tongued columnist could join the judging panel of 'Britain's Got Talent' insisting he will never ever work with her.

Speaking at the ELLE Style Awards, Simon said: "I'd rather take a bath, fill it with vinegar, cut myself a thousand times, immerse myself slowly for an hour than work with her. So the answer is no!"

Simon attended the ceremony, which was held at the Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street in London, on Tuesday night (24.02.15) with his partner Lauren Silverman.

The couple posed for a kiss on the red carpet and 'The X Factor' boss went home a happy man after winning the Outstanding Contribution to Entertainment prize, which was presented to him by Lorraine Candy.

Reports surfaced that Katie could be in line for a spot on the panel after Simon suggested he might quit 'BGT' in the next couple of years.

Putting herself forward for a job on the ITV programme, the 'Celebrity Big Brother' runner-up said: "There is a role for a Miss Nasty on any panel. We don't have any good Miss Nasties at the moment because everyone wants to be sweet like Cheryl Cole. They want to be loved. It would be good to have someone different. There's absolutely more TV coming up for me."
