Fans were up in arms on Sunday night when vocal powerhouse Seann Miley Moore was sent home in favour of Mason Noise.

But the flamboyant singer has no hard feelings towards his mentor Nick Grimshaw, who opted to take the decision to deadlock instead of choosing between his two acts, meaning the person with the least public support was sent home regardless of the strength of their final performance.

‘It all happened in my 50s. I have a son and then I lose my mother. It changes you. I’m still going through it’: Simon Cowell on fatherhood, fortune and X Factor
That live X Factor debacle? Getting rid of Louis Walsh? Pinching my friend’s wife? Yes, I’ve done some things I’m not proud of, Simon Cowell tells Event. But there’s life in the old dog yet…

There is something rather comically appropriate about Simon Cowell’s highly showbizzy entrance to a low-key photographic studio on the hipper side of London’s East End.

He arrives, his neon-white smile competing with his dazzling white shirt, eyes covered by the darkest Ray-Bans.

In the wake of television’s Sun King runs a beribboned retinue of tiny dogs who never for a moment take their adoring eyes off him. When he stops to chat, they let out a series of warning barks; when he sits, they jump into his lap.

Such is life for Cowell. Whether it’s women (Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Amanda Holden), wannabe singers (Stevi Ritchie, Anton Stephans) or tiddly Yorkshire terriers – Cowell is so powerful they all compete for his attention.

He loves it, of course. He’s used to getting what he wants and in this wide-ranging and characteristically un-PC interview with Event, no subject is off limits, because, well, Cowell doesn’t really have limits.

He revels in controversy, which is why he’ll happily sound off about Louis Walsh returning to The X Factor (‘if I had my way, he’d be on tomorrow’), becoming a father (‘I’m not a conventional dad, but then I’m not a conventional man’), pinching the wife of his friend (‘I can’t hold my head up about it’), fame (‘I could have become a monster’), and his legendary and undiminished vanity (‘I’m still handsome, I’ve still got it’).

In an exclusive interview, Cowell, 56, tells today’s Mail on Sunday Event magazine: ‘I’m not proud of the circumstances, I can’t hold my head up about it.’
