Simon Cowell 'deserves a knighthood'

London - Louis Walsh thinks Simon Cowell deserves a knighthood.

The X Factor judge can't think of anyone more worthy of the title than his pal and he is sure it will only be a matter of time before his good friend is recognised by Queen Elizabeth.

He said: "He should be a Sir. Why isn't he a Sir? He would be a great Sir. And he would love it!"

Louis insists Simon is one of the wackiest people he has ever known and isn't as serious as his TV persona would suggest, and the Irish star thinks the music mogul's odd personality will be a good thing when he becomes a dad for the first time next year.

He said: "Simon is God. He's everywhere, especially at the moment! He's unusual. He's very daft, he's interesting. He's not your normal kind of guy. He's slightly wacky and funny. He's just different. I don't think he's overly clever. I think he enjoys life. He's theatrical. It's an English thing, English people have this."

Louis also revealed the inspiration behind Simon's unique trouser style.

He told the Times magazine: "I think the high-waist trousers were from his disco-dancing days. He loves disco music. I'm not a good dancer, but I'm probably better than him."
