Simon Cowell goes X-tra large with 50 pals to help him

THERE’S no such thing as too many cooks for Simon Cowell as he bizarrely needed about 50 celeb mates to help him pick his X Factor finalists this year.

His old American Idol chums Paula Abdul (pictured with Cowell in 2011) and Ryan Seacrest are believed to be among stars helping Si decide which girls to pick at his pad in Malibu.

Meanwhile, Robbie Williams asked BGT wind-up merchant David Walliams to help him pick the groups in LA, while Louis Tomlinson flew Nile Rodgers and his 1D bandmate Liam Payne to Ibiza to help him choose the boys. Queen singer Adam Lambert and Leona Lewis helped Robbie’s wife Ayda make her decision for the Overs.
