Fox off, says Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell has installed an electric fence around his London mansion to protect his dogs from foxes.

The 54-year-old music mogul, who lives with his partner Lauren Silverman and their three-month-old son Eric, has gone to extra measures to protect his beloved Yorkshire Terriers, Squiddly and Diddly, from the pesky animals.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "This shows how much they love the dogs.

"They have put a wire along one wall where they think foxes would come from. There were signs of them in the garden and obviously Squiddly and Diddly would be no match for a fox."

The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge was alerted to protect the dogs after a neighbour saw a fox in his garden and although the fence will not harm the animals , it will shock them and he hopes that will stop them from returning to their $12 million property.

Simon and Lauren, 36, bought their dogs in 2013 and the pair dote on them, despite their bad behaviour.

Last year Diddly urinated on the floor of an exclusive store in Beverly Hill, Los Angeles, while Squiddly ruined a plush cream carpet of their London home as Simon was being interviewed.
