Simon Cowell was reportedly angry with comedian Peter Kay over his parody about The X Factor.
The music-mogul thought that Kay was ‘taking the p***’ with his comedy sketch Britain’s Got the Pop Factor.
Simon was also upset that X Factor narrator Peter Dickson was in the parody.
Dickson said that Kay claimed Cowell ‘hated’ Britain’s Got The Pop Factor.
‘He hated it. Hated everything about it. Thought we were taking the p***, undermining his success. He sent me a really stinking email,’ Kay said to Dickson, according to the voiceover star.
‘He was particularly upset about your involvement and I felt a bit guilty about that as I had given you my word, when we met, that it was an affectionate parody.’
The claims recently emerged in the narrator’s new book Voiceover Man, reports The Sun.
‘After the reviews came in and the praise for it was universal, he decided it was OK. Called me to apologise. Nowt as queer as folk, eh?’ Kay added.
The 2008 Channel 4 spoof starred funnyman Kay as solo artist Geraldine McQueen.
Dickson has been voicing TV shows since 1979.
The Irish voiceover artist is best known as the narrator for The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent.
His other work includes Ireland’s Got Talent, The Price is Right, Family Fortunes and All Star Mr & Mrs.
