Talking marriage: Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell says George Clooney's recent wedding makes him the world's most eligible bachelor.

The X-Factor supremo said there was a chance he could marry girlfriend Lauren Silverman, the mother of his son Eric, but admitted he was "not exactly a hands-on dad".

"I'm the only iconic bachelor left in the entire world – thanks for that George Clooney," he told Hello! Magazine. "I think it's a title I'll keep for a while longer if I'm honest. I've never said no to marriage but then again I couldn't imagine having a kid at one point and now look at me.

"I guess I was always nervous I may not end up getting on particularly well with the person I was going to have a kid with and I didn't want to make the wrong decision."
