Simon Cowell uses 'secret booster seat' to look taller

London, Jan. 31 (ANI): Simon Cowell, who is already known for wearing Cuban heels, was seen attaining some more height by sitting on a cushion at a 'Britain's Got Talent' audition this week.

The 53-year-old media mogul, who has previously been mocked by former judge Piers Morgan about his height, is thought to be between 5ft 7in to 5ft 9in, the Mirror reported.

"If you look carefully, Simon grows between shows. When we're on -Britain's Got Talent, he's smaller than me, then suddenly his three pillows arrive and he's taller than me," Morgan said.

Audience member Ian Hunter, who spotted Cowell's special chair during filming at Glasgow's Clyde Auditorium, said that he took pictures and everyone was having a laugh about it.

A female fan who also noticed the chair said that she thinks that he's got the booster seat because he wants to look bigger than the girls.

It was earlier revealed that he often wears heeled shoes to appear taller and has his trousers tailored to hide them.

The shoes reportedly cost 1,000 pounds and give him a three-inch lift. (ANI)
