Music mogul Simon Cowell has vowed to come clean about his "homosexuality" - but only if he is stranded on a desert island with his fellow X FACTOR judge Sharon Osbourne.

Ozzy Osbourne's feisty wife rekindled speculation about Cowell's sexuality by claiming his relationship with TV presenter Terri Seymour is a front to quash rumours he is gay, but Cowell claims he would turn gay if love with Osbourne was an alternative.

He explains, "She is partly right, if I was left on a desert island with her, then I would come out."
