Simon Cowell has become a victim of TV prankster Ashton Kutcher's practical joke show PUNK'D.

The British POP and American Idol judge became Kutcher's latest victim after a bogus valet at a posh Los Angeles restaurant convinced him that the keys to his $400,000 (GBP222,200) Rolls Royce had been handed over to the wrong man.

Cowell's fellow American Idol judge Randy Jackson was among those who set up the prank.

The music mogul's Punk'd prank will air on the MTV show in America on Sunday (26JUN05).
