The highly anticipated new musical is a classic rags-to-riches tale written by Harry Hill and Steve Brown and lightly pokes fun at the famous show’s format.

Simon is portrayed as a God-like figure in the musical which is not far from the persona he now projects on the American version of the show, where hopefuls hang off his every word.

The TV mogul was initially worried that Hill’s musical tale would be ‘absolutely dreadful’ after hearing of his plan to develop a stage show inspired by his winning format.

But he is said to have been won over after watching a tentative early performance, describing it as ‘really funny.’

Cowell said of I Can’t Sing! which is based around the story of two lovestruck hopefuls, Chenice and Max: ‘I know what Harry’s like, he takes the p*ss out of us every week on TV Burp.

‘And that’s why I thought it would be funny to work with these guys, because I didn’t want to do a musical which we took too seriously.’

I Can’t Sing will open at the London Palladium on March 26h with previews taking place from February.
