The X Factor boss has been spotted on numerous outings with the glamorous actress/model since September and Carmen has made no secret of her affection for him.

She told Access Hollywood last month: "We worked together on Britain's Got Talent ... I really like him. I think he's really cool.

"Now, obviously he's in town (Los Angeles) with The X Factor and we've started to hang out and we've become friends. I think he's a great guy."

And Simon has now opened up about their budding romance during an interview with US radio host Ryan Seacrest.

The American Idol presenter asked his former co-star about his girlfriend, and Simon jokingly responded: "Which one?" before admitting he has "been on some dates" with Carmen.

He added: "She's not my girlfriend. We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?"

Simon was previously engaged to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy, but the pair split earlier this year, while Carmen has been married to basketball star Dennis Rodman and rocker Dave Navarro.
