The 53-year-old X Factor mogul confirmed the split today from the 40-year-old actress who served as a guest judge on the 2012 series of Britain’s Got Talent.

He told the Sunday People: "I'm now a single man. We spent time together and she is so much fun. But I'd like to find a girlfriend.

"I do particularly like British women but I haven't got my eye on anyone."

Self confessed workaholic Simon also admitted that thanks to his busy schedule- which includes judging The X Factor USA, Britain’s Got Talent and managing relatively well known boy band One Direction- being in a relationship can be tricky.

He continued: "I'm lucky that I have a lot of good people around me. That's very important, especially when you do what I do.

"I'm happy but I would like a girlfriend."

Simon recently jumped ship to America where he has been working on the US X Factor.

Despite this, the music mogul admitted that he can’t see himself living across the pond forever.

He explained: "I love my time in Britain, so I always look forward to being here and it's where I feel like home.

"I'm actually quite British really. My mum would love me to live here full time again.

"I can't see myself living in America forever. At some point I look forward to coming home. I work two years ahead though."

So if the X Factor is still going in two years time, you never know, there is a possibility that Simon could return to the judge’s panel.

Although with the way the ratings are going, this could simply be a pipe dream at best.
