Simon Cowell has landed a multi-million deal after agreeing to stay on to remain as a judge and executive producer on NBC show America’s Got Talent.

The total being reported is a massive £25 million and comes just days after the BGT and X Factor boss got his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

NBC president Paul Telegdy said: "Simon Cowell is an extraordinary showman whose success stories over the years on multiple continents speak for themselves.

"We are thrilled he will continue as a judge on America’s Got Talent and his stewardship of the franchise will go forward for many years to come."

Simon Cowell said: "Without NBC, we wouldn’t be making Got Talent and I’m very proud to work with them. I’m excited for the next few years."

Insiders claim the deal keeps him in place as head judge, while as executive producer he and his company Syco will run the talent show for three more years.
