The music mogul confessed that the letter from his six-year-old son is the thing he treasures the most in the world.

Simon joked: "Well, I would normally hold up a bottle of Corona beer, but it's the most inappropriate beer.

"This was given to me on Father's Day and I'm going to read this to you because it was touching.

"This is from Eric, my six-year-old boy, to me," he continued.

"'I like to waddle, you like to waddle. I like fish, and you like fish. You like to swim, and I like to swim. I like to walk in your footsteps standing tall like you. You have webbed feet, and I have webbed feet… and I will always love you, Eric',

"It's my favourite thing I've ever had," gushed Simon.

"I watched Scooby Doo as a kid and now I'm thrilled to be watching it again with my son Eric," said the X Factor judge.

"When we were asked to be in the new Scooby Doo movie SCOOB! it was the quickest I've ever said yes."

He added: "We never really got to find out how Scooby and Shaggy met the rest of the gang and now we do.

"It's brilliant and what's more brilliant is that you will be able to watch it at home on May 15. #SCOOB."
