We could think of a few phrases to describe Simon Cowell – rich, charming, influential, er, nasty.

But “Peeping Tom” certainly wouldn’t have been one of them. So we were stunned when the X Factor supremo revealed to us that he has started snooping on neighbours in his spare time.

Simon installed a telescope in his kitchen after becoming obsessed with 10, Dudley Moore’s classic film comedy.

In the 1979 movie, which made Bo Derek a star, Dud uses a telescope to spy on his Beverly Hills neighbour, a porn producer who regularly hosts parties with nude girls.

Simon’s telescope is pointing out of the floor-to-ceiling windows of the Hollywood Hills mansion he shares with girlfriend Terri Seymour. 

The lens is focused on the sprawling gardens of the mansions surrounding Si’s plush pad.

Neighbour Britney Spears is used to the attention of having a lens focused on her. But other celebs who live nearby, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, John Travolta and Christina Aguilera, may be less relaxed about it.

But before they draw the curtains in panic, the bird-watcher reckons he hasn’t been able to focus on any sordid goings on – yet. Simon told us: “I saw that Dudley Moore film and it was great.

Afterwards, I got a telescope installed in my kitchen so I can spy on people.

“I look out over the Hollywood Hills into my neighbours’ gardens. It’s an amazing view. It isn’t powerful enough to see into their homes – so you can’t see them in the shower – but you can see into their gardens.

“It’s great fun. I just like to keep an eye on what is happening.”

Well, even a multi-millionaire music mogul needs a hobby, we suppose.

Just don’t tell the LAPD…

Miss NJ:  I cannot be the only person who thinks this is excessively creepy.  The fact that he thinks using a telescope to check out his neighbors is cool proves that he’s not wrapped too tight.  Medication might be a good next step.  Even more amazing is the fact that he freely admitted this in an interview.  He is a seriously twisted man.
