Julia Carta

In common with other newspapers, we recently reported Sharon Osbourne’s claim that Simon Cowell’s make-up artist Julia Carta had an affair with him while he was engaged to another woman.

Ms Carta informs us, and we accept, that this was not the case and that their relationship is purely professional.

We regret any contrary suggestion.
