Cowell in smash hit
X Factor judge Simon Cowell must be used to turning heads…although I can’t for the life of me think why…but his latest neck twister could have ended up in a neck brace!
To clarify, Simon was in Cardiff yesterday to film the second round of auditions for the new X Factor series, which nearly caused a smash hit in itself.
As he stepped out of his Mercedes in the carpark of the Angel Hotel, a passing motorist spotted him and was so starstruck she forgot all about the road and rammed straight into the car ahead.
A hotel worker saw the incident: “It was hilarious – the woman was so distracted by Simon pulling up that she lost concentration as she approached traffic lights.
“She couldn’t take her eyes off him and ran into the back of the other car which had stopped on the red light.
“Simon saw it all and had one of his funny perplexed looks on his face.”
Thankfully nobody was hurt in the crash, and the woman even got to speak to the hero of the story as he came over to check the drivers were both uninjured, before swooping off to make yet another wannabe star’s dream come true.
