Simon Cowell's camp has denied he is planning to have his body frozen after he dies.

The X Factor judge said he'd like to be frozen, so he could be brought back to life in the future, during a recent dinner with Prime Minister Gordon Brown - triggering reports he meant it seriously.

But Lisa Dallos, a spokeswoman for Simon, said reports that the TV star was planning to invest in cryogenics have been greatly exaggerated.

She said the comment was tongue-in-cheek and that Simon, who can currently be seen as a judge on TV talent show American Idol, meant it as a joke.
