Simon Cowell's new stage musical will feature his own character singing a song about how much he loves himself.

The Sun reported that British actor Alexander Hanson will play the TV guru, and belt out the song Falling In Love With Myself, which Simon hopes will rocket to the top of the charts.

A source said: "He's not exactly a Hollywood A-lister but he does a b****y good Simon Cowell. Simon had to admit he was the right man for the job."

The script has been penned by TV Burp star Harry Hill, while Steve Brown, who wrote many of the songs for Spitting Image, is behind the music.

The newspaper said that Simon turns out to be an alien, who controls the world from space, in the £10 million production.

A source said: "He genuinely loves it. Simon knows that many people see him as a bit of a cartoon character so he doesn't mind having the p*** taken out of him."

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
