Simon Cowell is apparently drawing up plans to create a new talent show to rival Britain's Got Talent.

The music mogul is currently 'weighing up his options' and considering taking his new show to a streaming platform such as Netflix, rather than a terrestrial channel.

According to The Sun, Simon has told friends he is 'sick of competitors trying to out-do the brand, so decided he would do it himself.'

A source revealed, 'Simon is constantly thinking creatively of new ideas and shows, innovating and evolving all the time. He's vowed that his next show will be bigger and better than BGT.'
