Cowell hearts TG magazine

TV guru papped in London with Britain's best-selling car mag

IT'S OFFICIAL: a Very Rich Man With Unusual Hair reads TopGear magazine! Or at least sometimes holds it when leaving a vehicle!

As reported in the Daily Mail today, Britain's Got Talent kingpin Simon Cowell was spotted arriving at a studio somewhere in London clutching a copy of TopGear magazine - available in all good newsagents! - IN HIS VERY OWN HUMAN HAND.

Cowell, of course, is a former Star in a Reasonably Priced Car, recording a blistered 1m45.9s in the Chevrolet Lacetti, slower only than Jay Kay (see video clip below).

Maybe he was tempted by the Stig's first drive of the Ferrari GTO in the June issue. Or perhaps the extensive review of the Bentley Mulsanne. Some have speculated that the Pop Idol judge can't get enough of the comprehensive data section.

One bystander is reported to have heard Cowell comment, "I particularly enjoyed the joke about the small window on page 151," though this cannot be verified.

So here's the Big Pertinent Question Of The Day: which celebrities have you seen holding a copy of TopGear in a suspiciously easy-to-photograph fashion? What do you mean, no one? 

Now share it...
