Simon Cowell is addicted to cigarettes and isn't planning to quit. Boo!

It’s been the longest love affair of his life. And it doesn’t look like Simon Cowell will be dumping his true love any time soon.

Yes, despite using an electronic cigarette at Britain’s Got Talent auditions earlier this year, Simon‘s not given up his 40-a-day habit. He once admitted he started smoking when he was just EIGHT years old. That’s over 40 years of smoking and think how many £££s! 

Simon is a man of many vices – beautiful women, fast cars, yachts – but it’s his nicotine habit that seems to rule his life.

The hilarious Chelsea Handler – girl crush alert! – quizzed him on her talk show, Chelsea Lately, recently and Simon raved about the joys of smoking.

Sometimes while I’m having sex, I’m actually thinking I want to hurry up and finish so I can have a cigarette!’ he laughed.

WHAT? Surely smoking is NOT as fun as sex? If Simon thinks that, maybe he’s just not doing it right!

If a guy I was with lit up immediately after doing the deed instead of making pillow talk, he’d be kicked out of bed pronto. That’s just not good bedroom etiquette. And those rules would even apply to a squillionaire like Simon.

I genuinely still love smoking,’ Simon says. I equate smoking with having a good time. I shouldn’t be saying this but, well, they’re not illegal, are they? After sex – amazing.’

Amazingly gross, Simon!
