Simon Cowell has been left red-faced after his sex secrets were exposed on a TV tribute show about his life. Simon's fellow American Idol judge Paula Abdul joked about the music mogul's performance in the bedroom while recording her contribution for the episode of British show 'This Is Your Life'.
Paula, 44, quipped, "Simon is an egomaniac. He's the only man I know who screams his own name when having sex. And his idea of foreplay is staring at himself in the mirror." The incident was made even more embarrassing for Simon, 47, as Paula made the comments in front of an audience including his 80-year-old mother Julie.
Simon's older brother Tony, 55, also let slip the music mogul would wear make-up to feign illness to get out of going to school. He said, "He used to wear pale make-up to look ill so he could get out of going to school."
The programme - presented by veteran British newsreader Sir Trevor McDonald - is to be broadcast on June 2, when viewers will see Simon reunited with various faces from his past.
Fellow The X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne, his singer ex-girlfriend Sinitta and TV presenting duo Ant and Dec were all involved with the show. Even pop manager Louis Walsh appeared to show there were no hard feelings after being axed from Simon's UK talent show The X Factor.
