Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman At X Factor Musical Premiere
Reality TV mogul takes first walk down red carpet since becoming a father...
Simon Cowell and fiancée Lauren Silverman have hit the red carpet for the first time since they became parents earlier this year.
The X Factor supremo and his bride-to-be were among the guests of honour at the official opening of I Can't Sing - Harry Hill's stage musical based on the long-running reality TV show.
After posing with Harry and the cast of the West End show, SiCo and Lauren shared a cheeky kiss for photographer at the London Palladium.
Leaving six-week-old baby Eric at home, Cowell wore his trademark dark suit and white shirt (no tie), while brunette Lauren looked elegant in a long-sleeved black dress.
SiCo told the Evening Standard: "It's like my second baby this year, it feels like that.
"It's exciting, and I never thought I'd be in this spot. I don't know much about the West End or musicals but the very first time I saw the run through I really, really liked the show.
"And now I've seen the Twitter reaction to the previews and the people who've seen it really love it. So I'm thrilled."
Meanwhile, in other X Factor news, The Sun reports that Cowell is planning to ditch much of the "boot camp" phase of the contest.
Instead he is reportedly planning to expand the "six-chair challenge" segment which debuted to controversy last year.
