London (ANI): Kelly Brook has reportedly been axed from the Britain's Got Talent judging panel— after just six days in the job. Brook was hired by Simon Cowell on a 200,000-pound contract to add glamour to the hit ITV show. The model and presenter, 29, was unveiled as a judge alongside Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden.

However, after reviewing tapes over the weekend, show producers decided the new format with four people on the panel slowed down the pace of the show, and Brook paid the price. Brook, who is dating rugby ace Danny Cipriani, was said to be "stunned and very angry" over the decision.

However, as the first Manchester auditions wore on last week, it became clear that Brook was not suitable for the role. "She simply didn't have what it takes. There have been a lot of tears and tantrums the past few days. Kelly came breezing in and Amanda, in particular, was very worried. But as soon as the first act came in it was clear that Kelly wasn't ready," the Mirror quoted an insider, a saying.

"You have to think on your feet to come up with something good to say each time. It can be very tough keeping it fresh. Kelly struggled from the start. Simon and the producers tried to give her advice, but it didn't seem to work. She got very stressed and upset as she thought people were having a go and that just made her more nervous. There was an almighty row and it was downhill from there," the insider added.
