Simon Cowell will have to fend off the attentions of David Walliams and Louis Walsh as they battle to be his mystery bride in a sketch for Comic Relief
Simon Cowell will have to fight off male hopefuls for the role of his mystery bride.
The music mogul is set to get hitched for the first time in a hilarious sketch to raise money for Comic Relief on Friday (15.03.13), which will see David Walliams don a wedding dress and try and persuade his fellow 'Britain's Got Talent' judge to marry him.
David joked: "I never thought I would see Simon Cowell get married, much like Cliff Richard he's the eternal bachelor.
"It was actually very moving to see him at the altar."
The sketch will see a series of his famous friends - including Louis Walsh, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden - fighting to tie the knot with the 53-year-old music mastermind.
Louis explained: "I'm not going to give too much away about my involvement in the sketch but I'm one of the people thinking he should marry me!
"Me and Simon are like brother and sister, you'll have to work out which one's the sister but that's what we're like."
Simon admits he felt "total horror" at the thought of taking part in the skit at first until his partner in crime David persuaded him into donning a tuxedo in the name of charity.
Entertainment at the fictional reception will allegedly be provided by some of Simon's favourite talent show acts, including Jonathan Antoine, Stavros Flatley, Dennis Egal and dancing dog Pudsey.
