Simon Cowell has told the current 'Britain's Got Talent' judges - Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams - that they are all welcome back next year

Simon Cowell has signed up next year's 'Britain's Got Talent' panel.

The current series of the popular talent show may still be going on but the 56-year-old music mogul has already got his eyes on the 2017 series, revealing Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams are "very welcome back next year".

He told Closer magazine: "I hate to admit it, but David is very welcome back next year. The whole panel is! We all like being on the show, and that's what's most important. They are about as good as we're ever going to get.

"We actually even considered transferring them all on to 'X Factor' at one point, but their egos, if I ever suggested it, would be unbearable!"

Meanwhile, Alesha previously opened up about the close bond between her and her fellow 'Britain's Got Talent' judges.

She shared: "On paper Simon is the boss, but we do make sure we keep him and David in order. All four of us revert to being teenagers on set. It's so much fun. We laugh so much. There is so much energy and I can't help but go home feeling really grateful that I get to work on one of the best shows in the country.

"And whenever we get together, everyone misbehaves. Everyone is a bit cheeky with each other. The banter is so strong and we are all so relaxed in each other's company."

However, the judging line up could have looked much different after it was previously revealed that Simon Cowell held secret talks with Goldie Hawn to appear on the show.

A source said: "Goldie's not just a huge name, she's got a brilliant sense of humour and isn't afraid to say what she thinks. She's like an even more glamorous Sharon Osbourne.

"However, Simon loves having David, Amanda and Alesha by his side and as soon as they agreed to join him again he ended all other discussions."

Only hoping that Simon Cowell has no physical part in it. That will be nice.
