London: Victoria Eisermann has revealed that she has been close to Simon Cowell for years and refused to deny that they were lovers. The ‘Big Brother’ star was evicted from the show on Friday, after her rival housemates branded her as boring, after three days.

But what they did not know was that 41-year-old glamour model had kept her close friendship with TV king Cowell ¬secret from them.

“We first met many years ago and became good friends. He’s a lovely person,” a leading daily has quoted Victoria as saying.

“I can’t say if he was ever more than just a friend. I can’t even say if we ever had a snog. But he’s definitely a friend,” she said.

The couple had first met in London’s trendy Met Bar when she had been modelling under the name Vicky Lee and afterwards they went back to her hotel and drank champagne before making love.

Both of them stayed in touch through Eisermann’s work with dog charity Canine Angels and dog lover Simon is set to meet her within weeks.

“Simon saw the work we do and got in touch – he loves animals,” Eisermann said.

“He even gave us a shout-out at the Britain’s Got Talent final. And I’m seeing him soon to sort out a strays rescue centre we’ll be working on together.”
