SIMON Cowell was caught lying three times after being hooked up to a lie detector – where he made a string of shocking confessions.
The 59-year-old Britain’s Got Talent star was given a series of tricky questions to answer on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show while connected to a Jeremy Kyle-style machine.
The first was: “Do you think looks are more important than personality?” to which he laughed before replying: “Oh God. No.”
However, the machine instantly branded his answer a lie as Simon chuckled: “This is brilliant.”
Second, Ellen asked him: “Would you ever blame an employee for a mistake you made?” with Simon replying: “Yes.”
The lie detector then confirmed the X Factor mogul was telling the truth.
Next, the 61-year-old host asked: “Do you think anyone in this room has a crush on you?” with Simon answering: “Yes.”
Again, it confirmed he was telling the truth – though the machine didn’t elaborate on who that person might be.
Ellen then asked: “Do you ever pretend to be sick to get out of any plans?” which Simon gave an honest “yes”.
After that was confirmed to be true, she asked him: “Do you think that you’re the smartest person in this room?”
Looking around, Simon replied: “No” – but the machine insisted he was lying.
However, when the host enquired whether he was a good kisser, Simon replied that he was – and the machine agreed, leaving him applauding himself.
Next, Ellen asked: “Do you ever lie about your age?” to which he said: “Not any more.” But the machine busted that as a lie.
Finally, she said: “Are you always an honest person?” and when he said: “No” the lie detector agreed.
Simon appeared on Ellen ahead of the series finale of America’s Got Talent, which airs in two parts on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
