    Simon Cowell to be knighted!

    Simon Cowell is to be knighted for his services to the British music industry, it has been claimed.

    The X Factor' mastermind's dedication to charitable causes, including the star-studded Haiti charity record for the victims of last year's earthquake, is also set to be rewarded.

    Westminster sources say the move was prompted by former PM Gordon Brown and will be announced in the Queen's Birthday Honours on 12 June.

    "[Brown] was particularly impressed by the way Simon responded to his suggestion to release the record for Haiti by dropping everything to ensure it was a success.

    "And there's also no doubt Simon has brought a great deal of happiness to millions of people with his music and TV shows," said the source.

    Cowell has previously publicly distanced himself from the idea of official honours but in private has told friends that a knighthood would be "his dream"

    i dont see why he shouldnt be really. done alot for the music industry. probably a little early though? he'd surely be one of the youngest to get a knighthood...

    Haha. This would be hilarious.

    I always saw Knights as 60+ year olds and it seems odd to have younger ones recently. It seems to take away the prestige of it, although I don't begrudge him of it.

    How long until it is Sir David of Beckenham?

    I tend to think things like this are abit mad what about knighting a doctor/nurse etc for what they have done for people someone who gives a lot of time/money to charity (I know you mentioned he had done a bit of this) but there are people who do more than he did and dont get recognised

    Is Brucie Forsyth a Sir yet?

    If not they need to hurry up and make it so!

    He has made a lot of bank managers very happy.

    Bob Geldof was 35 in 1986 when he was given an honorary award.

    BFN,

    fp.

    He should be shot for what he's done to the music industry, not knighted.

    what has he done :?, if he has sold records you don't like, blame the buyers not him
    same with x factor or bgt they are popular so he must be doing something right

    I think Louis will be jealous I bet he was hoping for a sword reward.

    Lets not kid ourselves that charity records are about making money. It may be to those of us who buy them but to the singers its about the stardom and being recognised. He has made millions. Yes we may like some of his stars but i would rather knighthoods went to more deserving. I would much prefer someone like the leading Heart surgeon in the country knighted than Simon Cowell.
