In view of her 15,400 Instagram followers today, Sinitta wrote: “There is a terrible prank that @SimonCowell has died.
“It freaked me out last night when people started messaging me! Simon is NOT dead People,” she clarified firmly.
“Very much Alive and Well Thank God I have a great sense of humour but you really scared me #NOTFUNNy #notfunny.” (sic)
The post was accompanied by a very blurry picture of Sinitta’s hands.

So Macho singer Sinitta was in a relationship with Simon for two years between 1982 and 1984, but they continued to date on/off for many years after that.
Since then, the hitmaker has gone on to appear in E4’s Celebs Go Dating with the hopes of finally meeting her match.
However, she has subsequently accused the show of “disgraceful editing” and was left feeling furious about how she was made to come across.
The star has said that comments she made about her ex-boyfriend were taken wildly out of context for entertainment purposes.
During the show, it was suggested that Sinitta was still in love with Simon, despite the fact that he is now loved up with Lauren Silverman, who is his fiancée and the mother to his eight-year-old son Eric.
The songstress strongly denied this suggestion, furiously tweeting: “Disgraceful editing!”
“To say I was still ‘in love’ with Simon Cowell was a huge disservice to me and my endeavours.
“Why did you do this? Love and ‘in Love’ are very different,” she added insistently.
