X FACTOR judge Simon Cowell has admitted that he's a jealous person. Cowell, who recently became a dad with Lauren Silverman, told hypnotist friend Paul McKenna: “I think jealousy in a weird way is good for you. In a relationship it means that you care.”

He admitted it's not just his personal life that can leave him seething, however; the ongoing ratings war between ‘X Factor' and ‘Strictly Come Dancing' has also affected him.

“If you are not jealous of your competitors you are not going to win,” he remarked. “When I see a competing show doing well, I feel physically sick.”
