Simon Cowell is finally getting married! But it's all in the name of charity...

The music mogul's love life has hit the headlines several times over the years as he's dated a string of beauties including Sinitta and Terri Seymour.

His engagement to Mezhgan Hussainy failed to end in a trip up the aisle, and Simon was most recently linked to Carmen Electra - but the notorious ladies man has yet to settle down.

But Simon is taking a pop at his love life in an upcoming skit for Comic Relief, which will see him 'marry' a mystery bride.

A source tells The Mirror: "It's an industry joke that Simon will never marry, even though he has dated a string of beautiful women.

"So for this year's Red Nose Day, he's willing to send himself up to raise money on the night.

"All the Britain's Got Talent team will be involved, with rumours that David Walliams will declare his love for Simon in a bid to stop the marriage.

"All Simon's famous friends have been approached, with Sinitta, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, Louis Walsh and Ant 'n' Dec being asked to join in, along with a host of Simon's ex-loves.

"Loads of contestants have been invited, like Rylan Clark and the Showbears for added campness. They're going to be filming it over the next few weeks, on a day when, hopefully, everyone can make it. It's bound to be one of the highlights of the telethon."

The mystery bride will be revealed during the BBC telethon on 15 March - and let's hope Simon is feeling better.

He missed almost five hours of auditions for 'Britain's Got Talent' in Manchester on Sunday after suffering a migraine.

His absence wasn't felt too much though - Walliams joked to the audience: "I wasn't feeling well yesterday and he kept saying, 'Don't come near me' - but I couldn't help myself."

Holden added: "It's ace when he isn't here. We can have our say and relax and drink lots of champagne at his expense."
