Cowell Criticises Slimmed-Down Jackson

SIMON COWELL has slammed fellow AMERICAN IDOL judge RANDY JACKSON's efforts to slim down - insisting he'll end up with no personality if he loses weight.

Jackson, 47, recently revealed he had undergone gastric bypass surgery to shed some pounds from his rotund frame - and tough-talking Cowell is far from impressed.

He says, "For every pound he loses, he's losing 10 pounds of personality. I'm serious! I haven't told him this, but I'm going to."

But 44-year-old Cowell is quick to point out his comments are not the result of any brewing jealousy, adding, "He's not that skinny - we're not talking TWIGGY!"
