Simon Cowell is hooked on detective drama Poirot.

The star, 63, reckons the Agatha Christie series is dead good.

He said: “I am a big fan of Poirot. I watch episodes all the time. I like anything by Agatha Christie. I love watching retro stuff.”

Simon has seen detective Hercule Poirot, who was played by David Suchet, 76, pin down murderers countless times on the hit drama.

But he admits he’d be useless if he was ever tasked with solving a case himself.

He added: “I am terrible at working out who the killer is. I’d be a terrible detective… I’d be dreadful.

“But I still love watching it.”

Simon is also a big fan of royal drama The Crown.

And he has previously admitted to spending hours and hours watching cartoons.

He said: “I bath twice a day. I find them relaxing. I smoke in them. I have TV on.

“I love watching The Flintstones. So that’s great for me with Eric because I’m now starting to introduce him to all the things that I liked.”

Meanwhile, Simon is caught up in Britain's Got Talent drama as David Walliams is said to be leaving the hit ITV talent competition after ten years.

Speaking to the Daily Star at a press event, Simon was asked about his fellow judge and hit back: "Can we not go there? If you don't mind.

"I think for me, the most important thing – and I had this conversation the other day. It's always about talent.

'If you don't have great talent, you don't have a show,' he said. 'That's all I care about."

When asked if David would feature on the 2023 BGT panel, he cryptically responded: "Ask me in a few weeks."

This came after a clip of David making offensive comments about BGT contestants was leaked to the public, where he was said to have called one a "c***" and about another: "She thinks you want to f**k her, but you don't."
