Simon Cowell has been named the highest-earning star on American TV by Forbes Magazine.

He shares the honour with America's Got Talent judge, Howard Stern who earns most of his money from other radio and TV work.

Simon - who has been in the news a lot recently after it broke that he was expecting his first child with socialite Lauren Silverman - pocketed his earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.

The majority of his stake comes from his appearances on The X Factor USA and America's Got Talent.

Other personalities that topped the list were talk show host Glenn Beck, Oprah Winfrey and daytime TV host Dr Phil McGraw who completed the top five.

He's going to be a lot less rich with a baby on the way...

It was revealed earlier in the week that Simon was to give a £10 million house to Lauren Silverman so that she could bring up their child.

Simon recently cancelled an appearance on the UK version of The X Factor in light of the news that he is to become a father.

However, he is set to return to The X Factor USA when the show returns in the autumn.
