Simon Cowell’s ex-girlfriends are organising his wedding.

The 50-year-old music mogul – who is marrying make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy later this year – will be helped by Sinitta and Jackie St Claire in the build-up to the big day.

A source said: “Jackie and Sinitta have taken it upon themselves to help out as wedding planners, coming up with loads of ideas for their big day.

“They have so many plans for the party afterwards and they want to make it better than his 50th party at Wrotham Park.

“God knows who they are going to get but it sure to be the wedding reception of the century.”

The weekend of September 11 and 12 has been put forward as a proposed date for the ceremony before the start of the live shows of UK TV talent show ‘The X Factor’.

The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: “They felt spring was too early to get things organised and Simon would be spending most of his time in the US with ‘American Idol’ so they pencilled in the weekend of September 11/12.

“It will be just before the live shows of ‘X Factor’ starts up again so he’ll have to go back to work soon after.”

Despite being friends with some of Hollywood’s biggest names, Simon won’t have any celebrity guests at the wedding, instead inviting them for the reception afterwards.

The source added: “Despite his persona he is a very private person and says he wants to keep the actual blessing of their marriage personal, with only his family and very closest friends present.

“There will be hardly any showbiz guests, if any, when they become man and wife. He will save the celebrations with people he works with for afterwards.”

Simon’s mother Julie has previously said she would like the wedding to take place at her local church St. Margaret's Church in Rottingdean, East Sussex, South East England, where she worships regularly.

She said: “I'm very excited about the wedding and I'd love him to get married at St. Margaret's. But it's up to him and Mezhgan.”
