Eric Cowell appear to have follow his millionaire father Simon’s step for making money.
The four-old has apparently already shown indications for being wise with cash says Stephen Mulhern, who works with the Cowells on Britain’s Got Talent.
The presenter of the series sister show – Britain Got More Talent Lorraine’s Christine Lampard how Simon, 58, had asked him to show his son some magic.
Stephen explained: ‘He’s a mini Simon. Simon calls me Stevie… he said, “Stevie, show Eric a magic trick”.
‘I said to Eric “Look, there’s a 50p coin, watch the coin and it’s gone…” and then I made it reappear.
What did Eric say? He said, “Can I keep it?” Like father like son!’
The magic man added: ‘I did give it to him. Afterwards I was like, why am I giving you 50p? I think you’re going to be alright!’
Stephen, 41, made his arrival fresh from jetting home from the USA, where he shot the finale of Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, minus Ant McPartlin.
He prasied Declan Donnelly for his solo efforts, before revealing that Simon has been a lot more ‘chilled’ filming the latest run of Britain’s Got Talent episodes.
‘Simon is more relaxed than he’s ever been. Maybe because Eric is older now,’ he observed.
He also added of the BGT judging panel: ‘I don’t think the judges will change for the next two, three, four years. Unlike the X Factor. Because the judges on the panel now… it just works.’
Simon and Stephen – and indeed Ant and Dec – will be back on screens this weekend alongside Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden for the latest series of the talent-spotting ITV show.
He revealed to The Sun earlier this week that he’d love Eric – whom he shares with partner Lauren Silverman – to become a Britain’s Got Talent judge and even take over his franchise in the future.
He furthermore ‘i want to spend more time with him, I’m pretty lucky because he loves the show.
