Simon Cowell Undergoes Regular Enemas

Simon Cowell has been outed as a colonic irrigation devotee.

Tom Bower's much-buzzed book about the telly mogul is the gift that keeps on giving - we now know Simon relies on regular enemas to keep his eyes sparkling.

Chatting about his favourite flushing treatment, he told Tom: "It's so cleansing - and it makes my eyes shine brighter."

The biography, out next week, makes Simon out to be a bona fide spendthrift - he once bought a vintage MG sport scar but got rid of it the next day because it was "too draughty".

The Britain's Got Talent boss, who earns £45 million a year, splashes out £3,000 a week on fresh flowers for his Beverly Hills mansion, and spends £155,000 every time he flies his private jet between London and LA.

His luxury yacht also makes a hefty dent in his bank balance - the 193ft Slipstream costs £2m a month to charter.

The Sun's latest excerpts from Sweet Revenge reveal Simon also wastes money on wacky beauty treatments.

He hooks himself up to an intravenous drip to pump vitamins into his bloodstream, and he once had a therapist visit him weekly to cover him in oil and clingfilm to "detoxify and oxygenate" his skin.

He even demands black loo roll in his bathroom - because white toilet paper reminds him of an asylum.
