Cowell voted world's best boyfriend

Simon Cowell's alleged fling with former pop star Dannii Minogue has failed to dent his squeaky-clean image - he's been voted the best boyfriend in the world.

The X Factor boss hit headlines at the weekend (14-15Apr12) after it was reported he romanced Minogue in 2007, when she was a judge on the talent show.


Neither Cowell nor Minogue had commented on the sensational claim as WENN went to press, but the controversy has not affected Cowell's reputation as it's emerged he's the man most women would love to romance.


In a survey by dating website SeekingArrangement.com, Cowell's well-known habit of keeping close to his ex-lovers and making sure they are financially secure has put him top of the list of perfect "sugar daddies".


Playboy British royal Prince Harry came second in the survey, and TV host Ant McPartlin was third.


And it seems a hint of scandal is attractive for men too - British singer Tulisa Contostavlos, who was recently embroiled in a sex tape furor, was voted the ideal young woman for an ageing rich bachelor, beating pop star Cheryl Cole into second place.


SeekingArrangement owner Brandon Wade says, "Cowell is the perfect sugar daddy - not only is he fabulously rich but he is fabulously generous as well. He loves women and treats them with respect."
