Simon Cowell wanted to name horse after himself


English comedians Ant and Dec have revealed that Simon Cowell wanted to name the horse he bought with them after his own name. The duo told Jonathan Ross on his show that they had to name the horse because it wasn’t named for racing, so they talked to the 53-year-old actor, who suggested naming the horse as “Simon”, the Sun reported. The pair underwent a Bushtucker Trial on the show, sampling some grisly ingredients cooked up by Gino D’Acampo.
