Simon Cowell Plans TV Interview To Set The Record Straight Over Tell-All Book

Simon Cowell is reportedly planning a dramatic tell-all TV interview to set the record straight about his private life.

The X Factor boss is keen to tell his side of the story after a new book revealed a string of details about his sex life, including an affair with Dannii Minogue.

According to the Daily Star, Simon plans to read the book - entitled Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell - this weekend before deciding what to do.

A source told the paper: "Enough is enough. Simon's taken a lot of flak this week and now it's time to take the bull by the horns."

According to the paper Simon is considering doing another interview with his pal Piers Morgan, but is still undecided about his options.

Simon was pictured yesterday looking scruffy and unshaven on a date with a mystery woman.

Simon's bosses at ITV have also been branded "disloyal" and "ungrateful" after claims they failed to respect him.

The author behind the book - Tom Bower - told The Sun of how the recent revelations could push Simon's relationship with the broadcaster to breaking point.

"ITV are shooting themselves in the foot by criticising Cowell," Bower said.

"They are risking a self destructive war by not respecting the man who saved their channel from bad ratings when they have failed to create other original and attractive programmes. Without Cowell their ratings would sink."
