Writer Tom Bower is planning a sequel to his revealing biography of Simon Cowell — and he said the X Factor boss has already agreed to talk to him.
Bower's unauthorised book, published last week, was assembled from hundreds of hours of conversations with the media mogul.
The journalist said Cowell had conceded some of the revelations were embarrassing, but they “remain friends”.
The biography, Sweet Revenge, detailed the millionaire TV and music boss's affair with Dannii Minogue and unflattering comments about X Factor judges and contestants.
He said he had spoken to Cowell since the contents became public.
“The first call was 'you are getting a lot of publicity for your book'. He said 'it's a bit embarrassing, you got things I didn't know you'd got'. But we get on very well.”
Bower said he was contacted “out of the blue” by Cowell when he heard he was working on a book about him and agreed to cooperate.
He said there would be enough material for a second book. “Oh yes, there will be a sequel. He'll be with us for a long time I think,” Bower confirmed.
