It looks like Simon Cowell’s longtime best friend Sinitta will miss his big day.
The pair have been friends for 36 years since singer So Macho became the pop mogul’s first signer in 1986.
Simon, 62, will marry American socialite Lauren Silverman, 44, next month. But Sinitta, 58, has announced that she won’t be attending the wedding – because she will be touring with the musical Chicago.
She will play the lead role of Matron Mama Morton at the Grand Theater in Belfast from June 6-11, before performing in Plymouth from June 14-18.
She hinted that Simon and Lauren’s wedding would take place during previous dates, joking that she would send them an Irish themed gift.
Sinitta famously rarely appeared on The X Factor alongside Simon for the Judge’s Houses segment wearing only a fig leaf. “I’ll send him an Irish lucky leaf – I’ll send him a fake leaf from Louis (Walsh),” she said.
Sinitta has been on the stage show since last year and will perform her final bow in Wales in July.
She said: “The tour has been going on since September, and I had to do the first three months, but I ended up staying six because they invited me because it went so well.
“And then I left in January and the tour went on and now I’m just back in Belfast, Plymouth and Llandudno, so I’m also finishing the last week of the tour, which is fun, because so i start and finish it! ”
Sinitta has alternated roles with Sheila Ferguson and everyone’s favorite diva – TOWIE star Gemma Collins. She said: “Well, I went to the gig on Friday at Wimbledon to see Sheila Ferguson, a good friend of my mother’s. In fact, my mom was in The Three Degrees with her when one of the other girls left.

“And then I will also go to Oxford to see the GC – because I have to see the GC! She’s a reality show diva, and I mean a pop diva! “
Other stars in the film include former Corrie actor Faye Brookes as Roxie Hart with Russell Watson and Denise van Outen’s ex-Lee Mead juggling the part of hotshot lawyer Billy Flynn.
Sinitta also revealed that she’s set to put out new songs this year, saying, “I’ve been in the studio recording some new music and I’ll be performing at some Music and Pride Festivals. across the country.
“I am also working on a documentary series about growing up in the 80s and it will showcase all my music.”
Simon recently said that he is hosting an intimate celebration himself and will stay away from “horrible wedding planners”.
He even claimed that he was keeping the appointment so as not to surprise Lauren – but it appears that Sinitta left the cat out of the bag.
