We knew her appointment on Britain’s Got Talent was no coincidence.

She was probably the LAST person we would have expected to see on the panel earlier this year.

Simon Cowell mogul made the admission on Kiis FM to Ryan Seacrest yesterday.

He told the host:  "She's not my girlfriend. We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?"

Seriously Simon, you’re not getting any younger- maybe it’s time to stop playing games and settle down.

Carmen Electra dished the dirt on their alleged romance earlier this year and was somewhat more forthcoming about what she thought about the multi-millionaire after working with him on BGT.

She said:  "He's so cute. He is adorable. He's actually a sweetheart ... I really liked him. I think he's really cool.

“Now, obviously, he's in [Los Angeles] with X Factor and we started to hang out and we became friends ... I think he's a great guy."

The two were first spotted together in September at a restaurant in LA where, despite being with friends, decided it appropriate to play a particular kind of tennis.

The tonsil variety.

An onlooker said: "They were getting very cosy. They were holding hands and staring into each other's eyes - and then they started making out.

"They were with other friends at the restaurant but didn't seem to mind."

Where are your table manners guys?
