Simon Cowell's Christmas hint?

Is Simon Cowell hoping someone will pick up a penguin for him this Christmas?

Simon Cowell wants a new pet for company - a penguin.

The X Factor boss is known for his love of dogs, and is making a new canine show for ITV1.

But he tweeted: "Watching Mr Popper's Penguins again. I love this film. I really do want a pet penguin."

Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams joked: "I'm sure Louis Walsh would dress up as one."

Lord Sugar also joined in, saying: "You might want to change one of the penguins on the X Factor panel."

The 2011 comedy stars Jim Carrey as Mr Popper, a businessman whose life changes when he inherits six of the creatures.

Simon was delighted when dancing dog act Ashleigh and Pudsey won Britain's Got Talent.

''I love dogs, I love animals and I really like Ashleigh. They deserve it. That dog will become the most famous dog in the world," he has said.
