Simon Cowell egged by lady contestant on TV show

Media mogul Simon Cowell was pelted with eggs during a recent live show of 'Britain's Got Talent'.

Cowell was watching two brothers perform at the show, when a woman came running out from backstage and hurled eggs at him, before being taken away by security.

The woman identified as Natalie Holt, 30, had appeared on a previous season of Britain's Got Talent, reported Contactmusic.

Cowell remained calm and promptly took off his jacket and continued. Also he won't be
pressing charges against the miscreant.

"As a result of her misguided actions the police were called. However, we have decided to take no further action at this stage," said a show's spokeswoman.

In the statement, released by the show's organizers, Holt apologized to the brothers, Richard and Adam, for overshadowing their performance, saying she realized that "it was a silly thing to do".
