Michael McIntyre has joked that talking to Simon Cowell about being a judge on Britain's Got Talent was like being on X Factor.
"He does it exactly like the X Factor. He says 'Michael McIntyre: I don't like you. I love you,'" the comedian told Newsbeat's Natalie Jamieson.
The popular comic also explained how he had no trouble making up his mind on whether to accept Simon's offer.
"I love the show and to be part of it seems to be an incredibly exciting thing to do, especially in January," he laughed.
