Simon Cowell receives picture of himself for Christmas

SIMON Cowell has received a picture of himself as an early Christmas present.

The 'X Factor' boss was presented with the woven image, which bears a distinct likeness to the music mogul, while on holiday in Barbados with his ex-girlfriend Terri Seymour and her boyfriend Clark Mallon.

Simon was spotted receiving the picture from a Barbadian artist, who seemed to have been working on the print for more than a year as it had the word "2012" painted in the bottom right corner.

The 54-year-old star looked thrilled as he was presented with the print, a portrait picture of him appearing to be wearing a purple Lacoste jacket as it featured the fashion brand's iconic green crocodile emblem on one of the pockets.

Simon celebrated receiving the early festive gift by going on a jet-ski ride with 39-year-old Terri's model boyfriend Clark, 23.

Following the jet-ski jaunt, Simon was also spotted happily chatting to locals as well as the former 'Wheel of Fortune' co-host and her beau.

But there was no sign of Simon's pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman, who is expecting his first child in February. She is thought to be in the US spending Christmas with her seven-year-old son Adam.
