London: After describing himself as "Superman”, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has said, "Most Italians want to be like me.”

The controversial 72-year-old premier, who has repeatedly denied allegations of inappropriate relationships with young women, insisted during a television interview: "Most Italians would like to be like me and they support my behaviour.
"Italians aren`t stupid, as the Left thinks, and they prefer my government.”

"Just look at the polls, we have an approval rating sailing towards 70 per cent".

The premier’s personal life came under media glare after news of him attending birthday of Noemi Letizia, 18, a model, erupted, reports The Telegraph.

However, he has insisted that "nothing spicy" happened between him and Letizia.

He has also said he cannot remember the escort Patrizia D``Addario, 42, spending the night at his official Palazzo Grazioli residence in Rome.

Last week Berlusconi described himself as "Superman".
