The media mogul 'vividly' remembers the day he met Cheryl
The music mogul hires ‘a lot’ of women for their looks but was stunned by how pretty Cheryl, 29, was.
I think my entire production staff – including a lot of gay people – were madly in love with Cheryl,’ says Simon, 53.
‘I mean, literally, when she walked on set on the first day in the UK I thought she was one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life.
‘I mean, genuinely. She was just absolutely stunning. She still is but I remember that day vividly as in: “God, you are gorgeous.”‘
Simon has had a string of similar-looking partners over the years and admits that he’s only spent a few months alone in almost a decade.
‘I’m happy single, and when I’m in relationships as well. I tend to be in a relationship more than being single,’ Simon tells the Radio Times.
‘Terri lasted six years, Mezhgan lasted two years, and that was in a nine-year block, so I was only single for about a year out of those nine.’
