Simon Cowell: I've had 'too much Botox'

Simon Cowell has had "too much Botox".

The 56-year-old music mogul insists he has "mellowed" when it comes to his beauty regime since welcoming son Eric, 20 months, with partner Lauren Silverman but admits he used to have the procedure a lot because "everyone on TV has it".

He said: "Hopefully I look better now - I probably did have a little too much Botox a couple of years ago, because everyone on TV has it. Now I have facials, but nothing too extravagant at the moment. I have a girl who comes here and does a great face massage - it's very relaxing.

"I also had a sheep placenta facial once, which was quite out there. Then Sinitta recommended I try another detoxifying machine, and this thing turned up in my bedroom and it was like something out of Dr Who. It was like a spaceship had landed in my bedroom."

And the 'X Factor' judge also admits he has tried a number of other pampering procedures as he's a "sucker" for believing things will work.

He added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I'm a sucker for reading about something out there and believing it will work. Once in LA, years ago, I met this girl who would wrap me up in cling film and then tin foil, after covering me in oils.

"It was meant to be detoxing. She then put me in this tube in my house, locked me into it for an hour, and told me what she liked or didn't like on the show. And because she was half-deaf, she was literally screaming at me. After about two months I realised, this is actually torture. That was crazy."
