Britain’s Got Talent stalwart Simon Cowell has revealed that he would love to have a family – but admitted he may have difficulty staying faithful to the mother of his children.

Speaking to The Sun, the mogul revealed he would be particularly keen to have a daughter, despite throwing doubts over his abilities to deal with a baby.

“I would have children if I knew that I could be – how can I put this delicately – faithful,” he said.

“I do like kids, I haven’t ruled it out. I’d love a girl. But I don’t think I’d be terribly good in the first six months.”

Fellow BGT judge Amanda Holden added that Simon would ‘be a fantastic dad’.

But she admitted: “He is so good with children. I want him to have children. But there is no way he would go near a nappy or a poo or anything like that.

“When the baby’s walking and could have a conversation with him and know who he is, that would be fine.”

Meanwhile, Simon also told the paper that despite declaring himself a fan of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher – who died earlier this week – he would not be attending her funeral on Wednesday.

“I haven’t been invited,” he said. “Actually, I’ll check my post, you never know! But I really don’t like funerals.”
