X Factor boss Simon Cowell apparently wants to re-live his teenage years and go out partying with One Direction!

According to Reveal magazine, Simon has been trying to "get down the kids" (no, really), and is causing embarrassment for his team.

"he's been talking about hanging out with the One Direction boys and going partying with them," a source tells the publication this week. "But it's almost embarrassing."

Almost?!

The insider also claimed that Simon has been a bit of prankster on set of the new series of Britain's Got Talent, winding the crew up with childish jokes.

One source said: "He's also playing juvenile practical jokes backstage on Britain's Got Talent - like putting whoopee cushions on people's chairs.

"But no dares do it back to him."

We bet!
