Simon Cowell is certainly a man that divides opinion. Some love his sharp wit and his eye for controversy in programs such as the X Factor and American Idol while others despise his factory line cardboard cut out pop creations and formulaic publicity stunts.
One thing that most people can agree on is that Mr Cowell despite what he thinks himself is certainly no fashion icon. He is however at least according to countless insiders incredibly vain about how he looks which may explain why he feels the need to fly carrots all the way from Singapore (oh a good seven thousand miles or so) to the United Kingdom.
Cowell says that they are the only Carrots he enjoys making them an essential part of his diet. He snacks on them regularly leaving them in his dressing room.
