Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell wanted racehorse to have his name
Simon Cowell wanted his new racehorse, which he bought last month with Ant and Dec, to be named after himself before the trio settled on 'It's A Yes From Me'.
Simon Cowell wanted to name the new racehorse he bought with Ant and Dec after himself.
The trio bought the horse last month and 'The X Factor' boss wanted it to share his name, until the double act convinced him otherwise.
Speaking on tonight's (16.02.13) The Jonathon Ross Show Dec, 37, said: ''We had to name it because it wasn't named for racing, so we had a chat with Simon.
''His first suggestion was, 'I think we should call him Simon'.''
They eventually settled on 'It's A Yes From Me', a reference to the judges' comments on Simon's TV talent shows.
Ant and Dec, who also appear on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here', will undertake a Bushtucker Trial on tonight's programme, when former 'I'm A Celebrity' winner Gino D'Acampo, 36, gives them some special dishes, including python nuggets and a maggot burger.
Ant, 37, revealed he and Dec rely on each other so much for their careers they have to be insured as a double act.
He added: ''The problem with that is that if one of us has a fatal accident, we're the first ones the police will come to because we've got a motive.''
