SIMON Cowell has told Kelly Brook she was dropped from Britain's Got Talent because she was just too pretty.
Cowell said the four-judge format was never going to work with someone as 'staggeringly beautiful and sexy' as the 29 year-old brunette.
BGT was to be Brook's biggest TV job since Channel Four dropped her from The Big Breakfast for being too gifted.
Cowell added: "It's hard enough for TV viewers to cope with Kelly's stunning good looks never mind the people who have to be in the same room as her.
"And I hope she doesn't take this the wrong way, but she's also too kind and generous and funny and clever to be on the judging panel.
"And then there's all that bubonic plague we've had in the studio that for some reason only affects lovely young women with brown hair whose boyfriends are famous rugby players."
An ITV spokesman said Brook was also being hunted by an international assassin who has filled her dressing room with dynamite.
He added: "So it's really for own safety that she's been sacked for being rubbish."
