Simon Cowell's Bafta Beers
Simon Cowell snuck two bottles of beer into a restaurant last night (06.06.10).
The music mogul stunned fellow diners when his bodyguard passed him two bottles of Sapporo Japanese beer as he sat down to eat with ex-girlfriend Jackie St. Claire and Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden, his fellow judges on UK TV talent show 'Britain's Got Talent', at upmarket London eatery Mr Chows.
An onlooker said: "No one could believe it when Simon sat there and got out his own beer. After all, he is meant to be one of the richest men in the UK!
"It didn't seem to bother him that other diners might have thought it was a bit strange and he sat there happily sipping away."
The group were celebrating Simon's win at the television BAFTA awards, where his TV contributions were recognised with a Special Award, while 'Britain's Got Talent' received an honour in the Entertainment category.
Simon has previously admitted he prefers to shun drinks on offer in restaurants in favour of his own choice of beer, which he travels with in the boot of his car.
The former 'American Idol' judge insists on having the special drinks to hand after undertaking a food intolerance test and discovering the yeast in regular beer makes him sluggish.
He previously admitted: "I've got a crate of it in the back of the car. Literally."
