Simon Cowell: Star judge reveals nasty habit

Simon Cowell has quit a nasty habit. No, not the high-waist trousers – but googling himself.

The TV mogul once loved checking himself out online, confessing his ego had been “out of control”.

But now he’s decided it can also be “negative” – revealing that seeing a rival showdo well makes him “physically sick”.

The 59-year-old says: “I rarely Google myself. I used to.

“When you first go on TV, your ego gets out of control. But then it all starts becoming negative.”

“I’m still competitive so when I see a competing show beginning to do well I’m actually physically sick,” he admitted – somewhat ironically – on Paul McKenna’s The Positivity podcast.

“And I don’t like my friends to do well. I think jealousy in a weird way is good for you. If you are not jealous of competitors, you’re not going to win.”
