Simon is romantic hero we’d most like to read about
MUSIC mogul Simon Cowell seems to have the ‘sex factor’ after topping a poll asking women which celebrity they would most like to see featured in a romantic novel.
The mega-rich X Factor supremo secured 17pc of the vote among swooning females who named him as their ultimate hero for a Mills & Boon romance novel.
Cowell edged ahead of actors Johnny Depp and Jake Gyllenhaal, who each secured 12pc, while Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson came fourth with 10pc. Footballer Wayne Rooney and actor Jude Law proved least popular with the ladies as their ideal romantic lead, scoring just 1pc and 3pc respectively.
The survey of 1,000 women aged 25-plus also found 20pc said they had not experienced any real-life romantic moments in the last four weeks. And 38pc had not had their partner say “I love you” over the same period. The poll was carried out by Mills & Boon to mark the launch of its redesigned covers.
