1066 tax fiddle



SIMON Cowell’s red T-shirt almost matches his tan as he shows off his slim new look.

The America’s Got Talent judge had no intention of fading into the background as he sat on the judging panel at the show’s quarterfin­als this week.

Cowell was forced to deny he had a gastric band fitted to help him shed about 20lbs.

The 59-year-old puts it down to a strict vegan diet. A HOARD of silver coins dating back to the 1066 Norman conquest shows evidence of early tax evasion.

Some of the 2,500 coins, found in the Chew Valley, Somerset, picture conqueror William on one side and defeated King Harold on the other.

The British Museum says it indicates someone was still using an old design to avoid paying a fee for the new one.

The coins could be worth up to £5million.
