Simon Cowell calls Steve Brookstein the 'worst person' he's ever dealt with on The X Factor!

Simon CowellSimon Cowell has reportedly rekindled his feud with Steve Brookstein, the first winner of The X Factor, by blasting him at a charity event!

The Sun reports that, during a question-and-answer talk at the fundraiser at London's Dorchester Hotel on Tuesday, a girl asked him to name the worst person he'd ever dealt with on the ITV talent contest.

Having sniped at each other in the past, it came as little surprise that Simon answered Steve! The media mogul is quoted as saying: "He was horrible, ungrateful and totally selfish. He just wouldn't listen."

Steve triumphed in The X Factor's first series in 2004, but was dropped by Sony BMG eight months later. He has recently become notorious for his scathing criticism of the show and Simon.

Over £110,000 was raised for hospice Shooting Star Chase at the function, which was organised by Cowell and PR guru Max Clifford.
