Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell Admits To Affair With Dannii Minogue
In shocking news, it's been revealed that Simon Cowell was having an affair with former 'X Factor UK' judge Dannii Minogue whilst she was on the show, with the 52 year-old music mogul reportedly admitting it during an interview for an unofficial biography of his life. In another revelation it was revealed that he'd also angled for Cheryl Cole, though the pair never got together.
The UK's Daily Mirror reports that Cowell was quoted in an interview for a forthcoming book being written by journalist Tom Bower as saying "I had a crush on her. It was Dannii's hair, the sexy clothes, and the t**s. I was like a schoolboy. She was foxy. She was a real man's girl. Very feminine. It was genuine love. After Terri Seymour, I wasn't ready for another relationship." A source has also told the paper "Simon and Dannii always had a big on-screen chemistry, when Dannii joined the panel in 2007, but clearly managed to hide their affair from viewers. They are said to have spent several nights together, but the relationship petered out after a while."
At the time Minogue denied any rumours which started when the pair were snapped holding hands in a car in the Autumn of 2007 - she left 'X Factor' after four years in 2011. The book which reveals these revelations will also reportedly say that Cowell attempted to start an affair with Cole too when she joined the 'X Factor' team, only to be spurned in what was described as a cat and mouse relationship.
