Simon Cowell isn’t planning to have his body frozen when he dies.

The X Factor judge, 49, joked that he wanted to be brought back to life in years to come.

‘I’ve decided to have myself frozen when I die,’ Simon told Prime Minister Gordon Brown at a Downing Street dinner earlier this month.

‘You know, cryonics. You pay a load of money and you get stuck in a deep-freeze once you’ve been declared dead.’

But a spokesperson for Simon insists his comments were tongue-in-cheek and had been ‘greatly exaggerated’.
