Cowell happy if son wants to sing

Simon Cowell will give baby son Eric his blessing if he wants to pursue a music career - but he will tell him if he hits a bum note.

The X Factor supremo said he will be honest about his son's abilities, but will not be as harsh with him as he is with aspiring stars on television.

Simon also said he is "definitely, definitely not" leaving Britian's Got Talent (BGT).

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, he said: "If Eric wants to try out being a singer, I would be okay with that. I certainly won't stop him. But I'll tell him straight if he can't do it. Admittedly, I might not be quite as blunt as I am with some of the contestants."

Simon described last weekend's BGT final as "fantastic" and said he was "really pleased with it".
