London, Feb 4 (IANS) "The X Factor" boss Simon Cowell has decided to walk down the aisle for Comic Relief charity's telethon.

Cowell, known for being a ladies' man, will do the charity for Red Nose Day. However, the identity of his bride-to-be has not been revealed.

"It's an industry joke that Simon will never marry, even though he has dated a string of beautiful women. So for this year's Red Nose Day, he's willing to send himself up to raise money on the night," quoted a source as saying.

However, there are some twists planned for the episode.

"All the 'Britain's Got Talent' team will be involved, with rumours that David Walliams will declare his love for Simon in a bid to stop the marriage," the source said.

A lot of preparations are being made for the episode, which will be aired March 15, and long list of guests is being prepared.

"All Simon's famous friends have been approached, with Sinitta, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, Louis Walsh and Ant 'n' Dec being asked to join in, along with a host of Simon's ex-loves," the source said.

"They're going to be filming it over the next few weeks, on a day when, hopefully, everyone can make it. It's bound to be one of the highlights of the telethon," the source added.
