TV mogul Simon Cowell has insisted that he "couldn't care less" if people think that he is gay – and admitted that he hires some women because he fancies them.

The star (53) told the 'Radio Times' he was happily single and not looking for a wife.

Asked if he minded when people asked when he was "coming out", he said: "If I was living 200 years ago in a coal mine, maybe, but I work in possibly the gayest industry in the world! Music and TV!

He added: "I couldn't care less (if people think I'm gay) because it's nothing to be ashamed of."

Cowell, who is about to return in a new series of 'Britain's Got Talent', said that he was "not actively looking for a wife".

He said of his mother: "I think, like any mum, she would love me to settle down with someone she likes, but she has known me long enough to know that I am also happy when I am not with someone. She's probably more fearful of me being with the wrong person."
