Simon Cowell has been left furious after puppies were left ‘trembling’ on Britain’s Got More Talent.
The dog lover – who has his own pair of Yorkshire terriers called Squiddly and Diddly – was reportedly fuming after the Dalmatian puppies began shaking during the quiz.
The quiz, hosted by Stephen Mulhern , saw the Britain’s Got Talent judges answering questions and for each correct answer they were rewarded with a puppy.
Despite thousands of people being in the audience and the loud noises of the studio, the puppies were handed out like prizes on the late-night ITV2 show, leaving Simon reportedly furious.

On just round two of the Puppies Got Talent quiz, the show’s creator told his fellow judges: “She’s frightened, this one.”
He also appeared visibly concerned about the adorable dogs on stage, walking off stage with his puppy to put it back in its crate.
He did not return to the stage, and the quiz was quickly brought to an end.
As Stephen took the show to another link, Simon was reportedly heard telling production staff: “They shouldn’t be doing this.”

The music mogul was also heard clearly speaking to the owner of the puppies to check on their welfare after their brief time in the spotlight, and reportedly said the dogs should be taken home.
