Music mogul thinks Pippa Middleton could do big things

Simon Cowell believes Pippa Middleton could have a successful career in television.

The X Factor boss reckons the pretty brunette, who caught the world’s attention when she stepped out as Maid Of Honour at sister Kate‘s wedding to Prince William in April, has something special.

‘I haven’t heard her sing, but if she walked in and said, “I want to be a TV star,” I would sign her on the spot,’ Simon, 51, tells Life & Style magazine. ‘She has the X Factor.

‘To overshadow your sister when she’s the one getting married? That was impressive.’

And Simon‘s not the only one to have taken a liking to Pippa, 27.

‘I totally fancy Pippa,’ Peter Andre, 38, admitted to us recently. ‘Is she single?’

Unfortunately for Pete, Pippa dates 30-year-old former cricket player Alex Loudon.
