‘X Factor’: Woman Suffers Panic Attacks, Heart Palpitations At Sight of Simon Cowell

"When I see his picture I have to run"


She’s allergic to Simon Cowell!

Michelle Hall, 42, says she suffers panic attacks, heart palpitations and vomiting spells at the sight of the X FACTOR star — and has now been prescribed anti-depressants to manage her phobia.

“I have to go into another room to watch TV because my children love watching X FACTOR,” the mom from Houghton-le-Spring in Northern England revealed on Saturday’s edition of XTRA FACTOR in the UK.

“If they are in the sitting room I have to go upstairs.  If not my husband has to take me out for a meal so I can’t see the X FACTOR.”

Hall says her living Hell began ten years ago, “when Simon first came up on stage with his trousers up to his neck. When I see his picture I have to run.”
