Do you think Simon Cowell is evil? Well it seems that he’s been like that since birth. He told some stories to Regis & Kelly this morning.
“When I was about four, I found the Father Christmas outfit. So I took my brother to the top of the house and said, ‘See, there is no such thing as Father Christmas’. My brother was about three at the time and he started to cry, and then I set fire to the Father Christmas suit,” he told Regis, to a chorus of boos from the studio audience.
He added: “I was horrible. I was really, really bad. A few years later, I bought a thing called a pea gun – they shoot peas. As a joke me and my friend and I got onto this bus and pointed the gun at the driver’s head and said, you know, ‘Take me to wherever I am going’.”
But his prank backfired when he and his friend found the cops waiting for them.
“When we arrived, there [were] about five police cars and they arrested me,” said Cowell.
