I still feel 40 years old – and thank god there are ways to make me still look it, says Simon Cowell, 62
BRITAIN'S Got Talent's Simon Cowell, 62, insists he 'still feels 40' – and is grateful that there are still ways to make him look it.
The music mogul will be back on our screens tonight as the ITV talent show returns after a year off.
Simon has been a judge on BGT for the majority of its 15 year run, and he admits he still feels as young as he was back then.
Speaking to The Sun while promoting the new series, Simon said: "65 is the new 40, right? Thank God with whatever we can all look and feel better nowadays.
"I know where you're going with this but it's all about energy. I've seen people at 50 look exhausted, terrible, haven't got it and then I've seen the reverse.
"I've seen people in their 80s who have still got it mentally and feel good running marathons.

However, he has no plans to take a permanent step back from the series any time soon.
He said: "I'll be committing until 2025 – that's when the contract runs to.
