Simon Cowell has quipped that he knows just what he'll be doing on Valentine's Day - enjoying Fifty Shades Of Grey.

The X Factor judge said that he and Lauren Silverman would watch the racy film - and follow it up with a trip to buy some of the equipment featured in the movie, the Daily Mirror reported.

Asked whether he's going to see the much-hyped film, starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, the TV and music mogul joked: "I'm going to have to, aren't I? And then a trip down to B&Q afterwards."

The DIY store recently warned staff that customers could come flocking to B&Q for the likes of cable ties and rope, featured in the film.

The big-screen adaptation of EL James' raunchy novels opens on Valentine's Day.

But in reality, Simon won't be spending February 14 with Lauren at all because she'll be out of the country.

Speaking at the Britain's Got Talent auditions, he said the couple would celebrate their romance a day early, on Friday.

"I'll take her to dinner, I'll be charming ... whatever comes next," he said.
