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.
