Friday March 26, 2010

Organisers in the US have announced that X Factor boss Simon Cowell is to be presented with an International Emmy award in recognition of his TV work.

The recently-engaged 51-year-old mogul is picking up the gong because he has "reshaped 21st century television and music around the world."

Simon said he was "delighted" at the news. "I've been very lucky to make the shows I love," he added.

He will collect his Founders award on November 22 in New York.
