London: Model Paula Hamilton has revealed that she had lost her virginity at the age of 16 to ‘X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell.

Hamilton, one of the most famous faces of the 1980s had claimed that she lost her virginity to ‘a boy called Simon’, reports a website.

She said that she and Cowell were childhood sweethearts while growing up in Hertfordshire in the 1970s.

The star of the decade’s iconic Volkswagen Golf TV commercial also confessed that, in contrast to his mean image on TV, he was ‘very protective’ and stopped teachers vilifying her.

“I couldn’t read or write until I was 11. So I was called stupid and bullied by teachers. Simon was really important to me because he stopped them picking on me,” she added

According to Hamilton, the first time she was ever drunk was with Cowell.

“He was funny and rebellious like me,’ she said. ‘Alcohol made the feelings inside me go away,” she said.
