Tony Cowell jokes that The X Factor judge Simon Cowell was a little terror


Simon Cowell‘s brother has revealed that the music mogul was just like Damien from horror movie The Omen when he was growing up. 

In the cult 1976 film, Damien is the son of Satan – and Tony Cowell has joked The X Factor judge was a mini devil as a child.

‘It feels like such a long time ago that I was growing up with little Simon at home,’ he says.

‘People often ask me what that was really like. Well all I can say is… do you remember Damien in The Omen?!’

But Tony does have a few compliments for Simon, 51, adding: ‘That said, I remain in awe of his talent and hard work.’
