Simon Cowell's close pal Sinitta has confessed that she had hoped for a future with the X Factor legend.

While Sinita has moved past her dreams of a relationship with the music mogul, ahead of his blossoming romance with wife-to-be Lauren Silverman, she thought they'd end up together.

Speaking to Daily Mail, the 58-year-old said she thought the pair had an understanding and envisioned a future with Simon 10 years ago – just before he started dating Lauren in 2013.

She told the publication: "It was about 10 years ago and yeah, I was still wanting to be with him then, yes," before adding that she felt the romance was "on and off".

Sinitta added that she thought there was an unspoken understanding, which she has now called a "misunderstanding on my part".

However, it looks like she's not holding any grudges, with the star adding that it was "upsetting" but "that's life".

She also reflected on when Simon and Lauren first became public knowledge after her pregnancy announcement.

The star said: "Obviously it wasn't my happiest moment because I wanted to be with him, but I got over it and we've all lived happily… well we've all lived to tell the tale."

Simon and Sinitta were linked from 1983 onwards and spent 30 years in an on-again off-again romance.

After the split came to a severe halt following Simon's love with Lauren, Sinitta told Closer that she was in the "friend zone" and once that transition is made "there's nothing to argue about".

The pair have kept a strong friendship, with Simon as godfather to her children Magdalena and Zac – and she's incredibly supportive of his upcoming nuptials.

Simon and Lauren revealed their engagement in January this year after they went on a romantic Barbados holiday, despite Simon previously sharing his lack of interest in marriage.

The star got down on one knee in front of the pair's son Eric, seven, and step-son Adam, from Lauren's first marriage.

The pair are yet to reveal any details about their nuptials, but it's likely to be a star-studded event to say the least.
