Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell has reportedly fallen in love with the show's make-up artist Francesca Neill!

Simon, who previously dated American Idol make up girl Mezhgan Hussainy, described Francesca as “the cutest” during the weekend's More Talent, and admitted: “I just can’t talk to her, I’m kind of tongue-tied.”

But unfortunately for Simon, Francesca - who looks rather like his string of exes - is already dating a "mixed martial arts fanatic", the Daily Mirror reports.

A source told the newspaper: “Francesca has just started on BGT, following Alesha Dixon when she moved from Strictly Come Dancing.

"She has only met Simon a few times and he hardly spoke to her. Now she knows it’s because he really fancies her.”

Simon finally confirmed he had no plans to marry then-fiancée Mezhgan earlier this year, although still refused to comment on the exact status of their relationship.

"It's quite a complicated relationship. We have had a break from each other, and we are still incredibly close," he explained. "I'm vulnerable. It's not on, it's not off — it's somewhere in the middle.

"I don't know if I will ever get married, but I am happy."

The music mogul also admitted that he regretted speaking out about the relationship, saying: "I have been pretty good about not talking about my private stuff, but I got caught up in the moment."
