Simon Cowell has offered to pay for Britney Spears’ wedding celebrations – if she'll agree to get married on TV.
The TV and music mogul is convinced ratings will go through the roof if his new The X Factor judge and her fiance Jason Trawick exchange vows on the programme.
He says, "I'm happy to have the wedding on the show. I'll pay for it. Why not?"
It's unlikely the pop superstar will agree to make her third wedding ceremony a public affair - but she's not completely against the idea.
She says, "It'll be a fun after-party."
