Simon Cowell will soon be answering to “Sir,” as the American Idol judge is reportedly set to be knighted by the Queen of England next month, according to the Mirror.

“Simon deserves the honour because he does so much work behind the scenes for charity and publicly supports good causes,” a source says.

“Simon has always joked he’d be last in line for a knighthood, but deep down, it’s his dream.”
Cowell was reportedly recommended by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

“Gordon Brown was very keen for Simon to get proper recognition for his work,” a source close to Brown says.
