  Simpsons intimidate Simon Cowell
Updated 18 October 2004, 21.26

Simon Cowell has said that his role in The Simpsons was the most "intimidating" thing he had ever done.

The episode sees him in his trademark high trousers, get punched by Homer Simpson after delivering some of the put-downs he's so famous for.

He stars as a boss who has to audition baby Maggie for a place in a well-known local nursery.

At a screening of the show, which will be on Sky One on Sunday, Simon said he was "very proud" to be part of it.

"It's genuinely my favourite programme. When I got the telephone call I thought it was a wind-up but it was true," he said.

"It was the most intimidating thing I have ever done in my life. I only had one condition - make me handsome and make me young - as you can see that's been achieved."

The Pop Idol judge tells Maggie she can always work as a "sweater folder" in The Gap clothing store because she is not clever enough to get into the Nursery!
