Simon Cowell 'Shocked' To Find His TV Set Bugged
The star was using the hotel to audition members of the public for his forthcoming U.K.-based reality TV contest Britain's Got Talent. It is now feared Cowell, and his fellow judges, journalist Piers Morgan and actress Amanda Holden, were the target of an underground betting ring trying to glean information about possible winners through their private conversations.
Cowell says, "I am absolutely shocked that someone tried to bug me. It is incredible the lengths some people will go to try and get inside information about myself and the other judges. Nobody knows what they intended to do with the information they got from recording our conversations - but it is a concern that they were able to breach security."
Police in the city have launched an inquiry and a man was arrested on Thursday night in connection with the investigation.
