Simon Cowell Wants a Pet Penguin!
Penguins are Simon Cowell's new fave animal

Simon Cowell wants a pet penguin. The 52-year-old music mogul has decided he wants one of the flightless birds for his own after becoming a fan of Jim Carrey's children's film Mr Popper's Penguins, which sees Jim's character's home get invaded by Gentoo penguins. He posted on his twitter page: "Watching Mr Popper's Penguins again. I love this film. I really do want a pet penguin."

Simon's fellow Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams, 41, suggested he seek the help of showbiz pal and X Factor mentor Louis Walsh, 60. David tweeted back: "I'm sure Louis Walsh would dress up as one." Lord Alan Sugar, 65, also joined in the jokes, posting: "You might want to change one of the penguins on the X Factor panel."

Simon has often spoken about his love for animals and was thrilled earlier this year when 17-year-old Ashleigh Butler and her performing dog Pudsey won Britain's Got Talent as he believed they deserved it the most. He said: "I love dogs, I love animals and I really like Ashleigh. They deserve it. That dog will become the most famous dog in the world."

Simon has even created a new TV talent show called That Dog Can Dance, which airs in the UK from Boxing Day (26 December 2012), to find more talented canines.
