Media mogul Simon Cowell has revealed he plans to leave his fortune to charity.
The X Factor boss, who is currently expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman, said he "doesn't believe in" leaving money as an inheritance for children.
Cowell told Esquire magazine: "I'm going to leave my money to somebody. A charity, probably - kids and dogs. I don't believe in that passing on from one generation to another."
The 53-year-old also discussed his work ethic and what he wants his legacy to be.
Simon said: "I'm going to be still working in my eighties or nineties if I can.
"A lot of people who retire, they hate their job so much, they just love the idea of not working anymore. That horrifies me."
The star added: "Your legacy has to be that hopefully you gave enough people an opportunity, so that they could do well, and you gave them your time, taught them what you know. I like that feeling."
