X factor boss Simon Cowell is addicted to sex, according to his ex and best friend Sinitta.
Sinitta, who dated Cowell 18 years ago, revealed that sex is so important for him that it sometimes overshadows his judgement.
''Sex is so important to Simon - that's his trouble. It clouds his judgement,'' the Mirror quoted Sinitta as saying.
Meanwhile, she has also launched a quest to find Cowell's Miss Right after he parted ways with model Terri Seymour.
''But I know what he really wants... someone to be his companion, his buddy, his mentor, but someone who can put up with his work ethic as well,'' she said.
''I'm going to find him his perfect woman. He does have this problem, though. It's called a roving eye... ''And he would always want a get-out card so he could still play with his mates and not mess up his relationship,'' she added.
