Make-up artist fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy has changed X Factor judge Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell admits he can incredibly self-centred but bride-to-be Mezhgan Hussainy has worked her magic on him.

Mish has softened me. She’s helped me see the world differently,’ he reveals.

‘She has knocked my socks off. I’d never been good at relationships. I never thought I’d be with one person – now I think I will.’

Simon, 51, believes he is difficult to live with and was convinced he’d be single all his life.

‘I genuinely believed no-one would want to marry me,’ he tells Oprah Winfrey in an interview on Master Class.

‘I’m selfish, quite weird, and I need time on my own to think – and then I work all night long.’

The X Factor judge spent New Year at the luxury Sandy Lane resort in Barbados with Mezhgan, 37, but ex-girlfriend Sinitta, 42, was also there.
