Alicia Douvall isn't over Simon Cowell

Alicia Douvall can't watch 'The X Factor' because she's not over Simon Cowell.

The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant dated the music mogul - who has 20-month-old son Eric with girlfriend Lauren Silverman - in the early 2000s and admits the only way she can stop herself from feeling jealous of him being around any other women is to avoid him completely.

She said: "I don't watch 'The X Factor' at all. I don't like to watch him with other girls.

"It's just uncomfortable. I know he's moved on and had a lovely baby, but I just don't like to have it in my face. That's one of the drawbacks of dating celebrities."

The former glamour model admitted she also gets jealous seeing Simon sat alongside his friend and fellow judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini on the show.

She added: "Yeah, I don't acknowledge it. I don't watch it. So then, if I see him, it's fine - I don't have any jealousy"

The 38-year-old star - who has daughters Georgia, 20, and Papaya, three - admitted she still misses having Simon in her life.

She told new! magazine: "I think anyone who has had Simon Cowell as a partner would miss him as a partner.

"He's like the perfect partner - he's very gentlemanly."

And Alicia won't be surprised if Simon goes on to marry Lauren.

Asked if she could see them tying the knot, she said: "I couldn't imagine him even having a baby so everything is possible with Simon."
