The record company millionaire demands mirror as desert island luxury

Music supremo Simon Cowell has finally confirmed what we’ve all known for years – he really is the vainest man on the planet.

The X Factor judge told Desert Island Discs presenter Sue Lawley yesterday his luxury item would be a mirror because: ‘I’d miss me.’

The shocked Radio 4 star exclaimed: ‘I don’t believe it, why?’ Cowell replied: ‘I’m on my own, no one around, I might as well have a mirror.’

Cowell’s discs of choice were mainly ballads from the 1950s and 1960s. The only modern tune was Daniel Bedingfield’s 2002 hit If You’re Not the One.

No songs from X Factor contestants made his final line up.
