"He's so unpredictable so no doubt he will have some tricks up his sleeve."

David, 46, may have been shocked to have received the invite from Simon because he previously claimed he never hears from the 58-year-old star when they're not working on "BGT", even though they get along well during filming.

He has said: "We are friends when the show is being made. He will sort of invite you out for dinner and you think, "This is great I am having dinner with Simon Cowell".

"And then you don't hear from him for six months when the show is not on and then he will be back in touch in January."

It was previously revealed that Simon is taking the girls in his category to Los Angeles, while fellow judges Ayda Field and Robbie Williams - who have the Overs and Groups respectively - will also be in the city.
