Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell takes gravy on vacation for Christmas dinner
Simon Cowell loves celebrating the festive season with a roast dinner but isn't keen on how people outside of the UK cook it, so he's taking Bisto gravy with him to add flavour to his meal.
Simon Cowell will take his own gravy on vacation for Christmas dinner.
The 54-year-old music mogul loves celebrating the festive season with a traditional roast dinner, but he is so particular about the gravy he uses to supplement his meal, he will be stocking up on store-bought Bisto granules.
He said: ''Well, you've got to have Bisto. That's number one and it's the one thing I learned from being out in LA, you always have to bring your own Bisto with you.
''And you've got to get your mum to teach the chef how to do the roast potatoes, because they do the little ones here and I like the big ones.''
Simon, who will welcome his first child with girlfriend Lauren Silverman in February, often gets involved in traditional Christmas activities, despite jetting off on vacation during the holidays.
He said: ''We always watch 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I watched it last week and it's the best Christmas movie of all time.
''Every time I see it, it always puts me in a good mood. And then Trivial Pursuit, Balderdash ... but I'm always in the Caribbean. I go somewhere hot now.''
