The X Factor: Celebrity judge Simon Cowell has reportedly been left fuming after a close pal leaked details of his birthday bash and, in an effort inspired by Coleen Rooney’s super-sleuthing skills, is attempting to track down the culprit himself.

Coleen wowed us all with her impressive detective skills last month, when she claimed to have discovered that fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy's account had been selling stories about her to the tabloid press.

Now it seems Simon is hoping to replicate Coleen’s success after details of his birthday dinner, due to take place at swanky London restaurant La Famiglia last week, were leaked.

According to The Sun, the music mogul is ‘on a mission’ to find the leaker and has been casting an eye over the guest list, which included celeb pals Cheryl, Robbie Williams, and of course, Sinitta, to narrow down the suspects.

A source told the publication: “No stone is being left unturned; Simon and his team are on a mission.

“Inspired by Coleen and her intrepid Wagatha Christie efforts, Simon is wading through his party list, trying to figure out possible motives: greed, publicity, desperation or revenge.

“The invites were all sent out from a secure email address, so this is being looked at, too.”

The source revealed Simon has some serious sleuthing skills and that the guilty party “should be quaking in the their Louboutins” over when, and not if, their identity is revealed.

Coleen Rooney’s infamous statement in which she accused Rebekah Vardy's account of selling stories about her went viral last month and inspired many hilarious memes.

Rebekah, who is eight months pregnant with her fifth child, fiercely denied Coleen’s claims and was later seen returning to England from her Dubai holiday in floods of tears.

The wife of Leicester footballer Jamie Vardy proclaimed her innocence in a statement, writing: “I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?”

Claiming that “various people have had access to [her] Insta” and that “just this week I found out that I’m following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself”, Rebekah concluded: “I liked you a lot Coleen & I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when I’m heavily pregnant. I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this.”
