Simon Cowell hypnotised by dog

Manchester - Simon Cowell collapsed after being hypnotised by a dog.

The 55-year-old music mogul - who stars as a judge on ITV variety show 'Britain's Got Talent'- is reported to have passed out during the auditions stages of the competition after staring into a pup's eyes.

Simon got up on stage at Manchester's Lowry Theatre to meet the German Spitz named Princess after her owner claimed she could hypnotise people with just a glance.

On returning to his seat, the star told fellow judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams he felt unwell and, shortly after the cameras stopped rolling, slumped over the table.

The owner was called back and brought Princess onto the stage to wake Simon up.

A show source told The Sun newspaper: ''It was the freakiest moment we've ever had.''

The TV producer wasn't the only celebrity to fall victim to Princess' hypnotic gaze.

Hosts Ant and Dec also found themselves forgetting the number seven as they counted to ten together shortly after looking into the dog's eyes.
