  • Simon Cowell has denied having an affair with Mel B after his girlfriend Lauren Silverman reportedly sent some furious texts to the Spice Girl.

    Simon was reportedly “livid and mortified” when his partner – and the mother of his son, Eric – accused him and Mel of having a fling while they were working together on The X Factor in 2018.

    Mel, who quit The X Factor last year, was also said to be angry and embarrassed by Lauren’s allegations and denied any romance between her and Simon.

    A source told the Mirror: “Clearly this story is utterly ridiculous and completely pointless – because there was no affair. Simon and Lauren are very happy together as a couple.

    “They have been in lockdown together in LA for more than six weeks now.”

    A separate insider told The Sun: “Poor Lauren adores Simon but is naturally very suspicious of all the female attention he gets.

    “Because he’s so charismatic, women flock to him – and it riles Lauren.”

    Hello everyone. I wanted to share something exciting my son Eric and I have been working on. I would like to introduce to you #WISHFITS. To begin with, we have announced a seven book deal with @hachettekids today. WISHFIT is a world where the most unusual animals exist. The WISHFITS are magical, unusual and have evolved in a weird and wonderful way, combining two different species to form hybrid animals with very distinct characteristics! Some of Eric’s favourite WISHFITS include the DAT (dog/cat) the COG (cat/dog), the SNOG (snail/dog – the enthusiasm of a dog at the speed of a snail), the PEEP (pig/sheep) the CHUG (cheetah/slug – the slowest cat in the world), the HIPPOROO (hippo/kangaroo), the CHIMPANPOO (chimpanzee/poodle), the POLARBAT (polarbear/bat), the CROCOPUSS (crocodile/cat), the SHIGER (sheep/tiger – the most nervous cat in the world), the SPIKEY (spider/donkey) and many, many more. To be able to write a series of books with my son Eric has been magical. This idea was inspired 3 years ago by a very special friend of ours who runs a Children’s Hospice charity. I told her one evening about some of the funny animals my son Eric and I would invent, starting with the Cog and the Dat. And how every evening the two of us would think of the most unlikely animal we would like to have as a pet. She loved this idea so much she encouraged me to turn this into a book series. I then met with an amazing company called @tongalteam who have a global community of creators. We loved the idea of thousands of creative people being part of the development of our idea. I am thrilled to be working with Hachette, an amazing publishing house. They shared our passion and enthusiasm from the moment we told them about WISHFITS.
 Two of the children’s charities I work closely with will benefit from profits of WISHFITS, @sschospices and @togetherforshortlives. Simon PS. My gut feeling is that some of these WISHFITS actually exist…somewhere!

    The source went on to reveal that Lauren is “insecure” because she and Simon aren’t married.

    “Simon obviously gets on well with Mel and all his female co-stars, but that’s all there’s ever been to it; absolutely no hint of romance,” they said. “They were both pretty livid – and mortified – when Lauren accused them of a ridiculous affair which never, ever happened.”

    The rumours come after Amanda Holden’s eight-year-old daughter Hollie interrupted her mum’s Instagram Live to question if Simon and Lauren had split up.

    Amanda was recalling the moment she played her NHS charity single to Simon and Lauren, and Hollie asked: “I thought they broke up?”

    Amanda quickly replied: “Simon and Lauren?”

    And Hollie confirmed, “Yes”, but her mum snapped back: “Don’t be stupid.”
