Ant and Dec have made a particularly cheeky dig about Simon Cowell's face after fans called him 'unrecognisable'.
The dynamic duo made the joke at the judge's expense as they get ready for the upcoming return of Britain's Got Talent this Saturday night (15 April).
Taking no time to get the banter flowing, the pair joked about Cowell's visage and didn't hold back.
Simon, however, once seemed to maintain that he was actually ageing 'quite well'. Check it out:
They took no time in landing a hilarious dig at their 63-year-old in an interview to prepare for the launch of the shiny new season.
Without any hesitation, Ant chimed in with: "What? Simon has a new face?”
The presenters were, instead, speaking of the show's exciting newcomer, Bruno Tonioli - former Dancing with the Stars and Strictly Come Dancing judge.
But, considering that fans have previously commented on the music mega-boss as looking 'unrecognisable', it's clear that the jab was a not-so-subtle nod to such comments.
The judge has recently lost a sizeable amount of weight - four whole stone to be be exact - after starting up an intensive health and fitness regime.
Simon, however, doesn't seem at all fussed by comments of the sort after once claiming that he reckons he is 'ageing quite well' in a brilliant resurfaced video where he jokingly tears into Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson.
The music mogul, who was 48 at the time, told the car enthusiast that he is the equivalent of an old 'Jaguar that needs help'.
The pair joked around, with Jeremy asking if he could ever be hired as a judge on one of Simon's other talent show projects, X-Factor.
In true Simon fashion, he delivered the jab: "Shall I tell you why you couldn't? Because I am ageing quite well and you're not."
The 16th series of Britain's Got Talent starts this Saturday (15 April) on ITV1 at 8pm.
