London (ANI): Simon Cowell has been dubbed 'too old' to take the talent show X Factor to China, Chinese ambassador to London reportedly believes. Madam Fu Ying, who recently revealed that she was an admirer of the show, allegedly thought the 50-year-old music mogul may fail to impress the Chinese audience.
"He is too old," the Telegraph quoted her as purportedly saying at The Spectator's Parliamentarian of the Year Awards, at Claridge's, in Mayfair.
"In China, there is great respect for older people, but television is dominated by the young. They are the ones who use mobile phones and things like that," she apparently added.
