London: Music mogul Simon Cowell wanted to share his name with a new racehorse, which he bought last month with comedy and TV presenting duo Ant and Dec. The trio ultimately settled on It`s A Yes From Me, a reference to the judges` comments on Cowell`s TV talent shows.

"We had to name it because it wasn`t named for racing, so we had a chat with Simon. His first suggestion was, `I think we should call him Simon`," Dec, 37, said on ‘The Jonathon Ross Show’, reports

Ant, 37, revealed he and Dec rely on each other so much for their careers they have to be insured as a double act.

"The problem with that is that if one of us has a fatal accident, we`re the first ones the police will come to because we`ve got a motive," he said.
