Simon CowellSimon Cowell says the idea of retirement makes him "want to jump off a bridge."

The Britain's Got Talent and X Factor boss also claims that he has never had his heart broken and thinks most people's marriages are boring. The 52-year-old star insists he isn't ready to retire and told the Telegraph newspaper, "I'd rather drop dead doing my job. The idea of getting up in the morning to play golf makes me want to jump off a bridge."

But Simon isn't worried about getting older because he believes there are advantages. "You don't get so insecure or competitive. And if you can grow old gracefully, you're fit and healthy and not bad looking," he explained.

Simon - who called off his engagement to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy in early 2012 - was most recently linked to Carmen Electra and is still close to his ex-girlfriends Jackie Sinclair, Sinitta and Terri Seymour but doesn't think he will ever marry: "Well it worries me because I've seen it destroy people. And I couldn't think of anything worse than being in an unhappy marriage. Actually, being on my own is the best thing in the world."
