X Factor judge will leave money to charity

TAGS:

Simon Cowell has revealed that he plans to have his body frozen when he dies in the hope of being restored to life one day.

The music mogul says the controversial cryonics procedure – which preserves bodies in liquid nitrogen and can cost up to £120,000 – is worth a shot.

It’s an insurance policy,’ Simon, 51, explains. If it’s possible – and I think it will be – why not have a second crack? Does that sound crazy? I think it’s a good idea.

‘If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. If it does work, I’ll be happy.

I have a feeling that if I don’t do it, I could regret it in 300 years.’

Despite the chance he may return to launch The X Factor 3011, when medical technology has the know-how, Simon intends to leave his extensive fortune to children and animals.

Leave the whole lot to charity,’ Simon tells GQ magazine.

You enjoy it while you’ve got it, then it’s gone to good causes.’
