Music mogul Simon Cowell has been nicknamed 'The Child Catcher' on the set of his new British talent show - because he is so unfriendly towards kids.
Cowell, who has no children of his own, was soon given the joke name, a reference to the baddie in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, after fellow judges noticed his dislike for youngsters on BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT.
One judge, UK TV actress AMANDA HOLDEN, says, "He just doesn't like children, he's not interested. When they come on you can see he isn't interested.
"I would not bring my daughter to work. I had a photo of her on my phone and Simon just said, 'You've got dogs too, haven't you? Have you got a picture of a dog?'"
