Simon Cowell's festive ex
Simon Cowell is spending Christmas with his ex-girlfriend Sinitta and her family
Simon Cowell is spending Christmas with his ex-girlfriend and her family.
The music mogul has asked former pop star Sinitta - who he dated 18 years ago - her children Magdalena, three, and two-year-old Zac, and her mother to join him at his holiday home in Barbados.
Sinitta - whose husband Andy Willner lives in Hong Kong - said: "I'm going to be in Barbados for Christmas for a few weeks with my babies. We're going with Simon and staying in the house where we shot 'The X Factor'.
"I don't know what we'll be doing because this will be the first time I will be away with the children. I imagine we'll all be down at the beach building sand castles with my Santa Claus outfit on!
"I will try to make it as festive as possible. My mum will be there, too."
Sinitta also revealed she will be in charge of the festive feast because she is so worried about Simon's expanding waistline.
She added to Britain's New! magazine: "When we shoot 'The X Factor' I'm the evil stepmother telling the canteen, 'Don't let Simon have any of this! Don't feed the contestants any cake!' "
