Simon Cowell insists he and his fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy haven't got married yet because he has been completely focused on the new US version of 'The X Factor'.
The music mogul has launched a US version of his pop star search show this year and he admits his attention has been focused on making his new project a success rather than think about wedding plans.
He told America's Star magazine: "I'm not going to lie - everything this year has been about working on 'The X Factor'. It has probably been the busiest year I've ever had ... Making the choice to get married is something you just have to decide when the time is right."
Simon and make-up artist Mezhgan got engaged in February 2010 and the 51-year-old star's publicist Max Clifford recently insisted everything was great between the couple but has no idea when they will tie the knot.
He said: "You might have to wait 20 years for Simon to plan a wedding - but they are as close as they have ever been."
