Simon Cowell reveals he was ARRESTED: “I was thrown in jail”

Music mogul Simon Cowell has revealed he was once arrested, during an interview with ITV’s This Morning.

Simon, 58, sat down with Allison Hammond to chat all things X Factor, his recent fall, and whether or not Cheryl will ever return as a judge.

But during the interview with Allison, Simon revealed that he was once arrested by the police over holding a bus up with a fake gun.


The X Factor judge said: “It was a joke, I thought. I put a gun – it was a pretend gun – and we said to the bus driver, ‘Take us to Watford!’ He literally did not stop until we got to Watford.

“I was there with Rak-Su the other day and I told them the story, ‘The last time I went to Watford, I was thrown in jail’.”

Elsewhere, this weekend is The X Factor 2017 final and either Grace Davies, Kevin Davy White or Rak-Su will win this years competition and that all important record deal.

The X Factor final airs on ITV.
