Simon Cowell wanted his new racehorse, which he bought last month with Ant and Dec, to be named after himself before the trio settled on 'It's A Yes From Me'.
Simon Cowell wanted to name the new racehorse he bought with Ant and Dec after himself.
The trio bought the horse last month and 'The X Factor' boss wanted it to share his name, until the double act convinced him otherwise.
Speaking on tonight's (16.02.13) The Jonathon Ross Show Dec, 37, said: ''We had to name it because it wasn't named for racing, so we had a chat with Simon.
''His first suggestion was, 'I think we should call him Simon'.''
They eventually settled on 'It's A Yes From Me', a reference to the judges' comments on Simon's TV talent shows.
Ant and Dec, who also appear on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here', will undertake a Bushtucker Trial on tonight's programme, when former 'I'm A Celebrity' winner Gino D'Acampo, 36, gives them some special dishes, including python nuggets and a maggot burger.
Ant, 37, revealed he and Dec rely on each other so much for their careers they have to be insured as a double act.
He added: ''The problem with that is that if one of us has a fatal accident, we're the first ones the police will come to because we've got a motive.''
