Simon Cowell reveals he hasn't touched his mobile phone in 10 months!

LONDON, England (PNN) - June 3, 2018 - His phone book is crammed with numbers of the rich and famous.

But if any of the A-listers try to call Simon Cowell, he won't answer - because his mobile phone is off, and it has been for ten months.

In an astonishing confession, the television mogul revealed he had become so distracted and irritated by his phone that he made himself uncontactable for the sake of his mental health and happiness.

He said, “I literally have not been on my phone for ten months. The difference it made was that I became more aware of the people around me and way more focused. The thing I get irritated with is when you have a meeting everyone's on their phone - and I was probably in that place too. You can't concentrate. It has been so good for my mental health. It's a very strange experience but it really is good for you and it has absolutely made me happier.”

The 58-year-old - who recently struck his first deal with the BBC by selling it the rights to the contest The Greatest Dancer - also revealed he is considering an offer from the BBC to buy Britain's Got Talent.

Speaking ahead of tonight's BGT final, he said, “You always wonder if the show would work better on the BBC. I have thought about that a lot recently.”

He is also thinking about how to boost TV audiences, and credits his four-year-old son, Eric, with helping in his quest.

The star limits the time his son is allowed to spend on his iPad and instead sits with him to watch TV shows.

“When you talk to a lot of TV people they always talk about this 18-34 demographic; I'm more interested in bringing in the very young viewers, like Eric's age, because if you get them watching television, they will hopefully keep watching it. That's what we need to do to ensure the future of television.”
