Simon Cowell is most definitely attending Stevi Ritchie and Chloe-Jasmine Whichello's wedding.

Speaking to The Mirror, an excited Stevi gushed: "Simon's just said he's coming to the wedding. I'm so excited!"

Caught up in the moment, Stevi reportedly turned to fiancée Chloe, saying: "I think I'd rather marry him than you!"

In August, Stevi ended up inviting Marvin and Rochelle Humes to his wedding after revealing how desperate he was to get his former X Factor mentor to come along to the nuptials.

Speaking on This Morning, Stevi said Simon was no longer in contact with him: "I don't [speak to him]," said Stevie when asked by Marvin. "I wish he'd get in contact really because I'm dying to speak to him because obviously I want to invite him to our wedding next year, which by the way you can come as well. We'd love to have you there."

Chloe and Stevi finished CBB in fifth place.

Perhaps not seeing Stevi's pleas via Twitter, Simon has since said in an interview that he "would go" if he was invited.

Elsewhere, Chloe's former X Factor mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is also expected to attend the wedding. Cheryl publicly congratulated the pair when they announced their happy news and said she needed to find a hat.

While in the CBB house, Chloe and Janice Dickinson also asked each other to be bridesmaids at their upcoming weddings. In fact, Chloe and Stevi said they were keen for all of their housemates to attend their special day.

Stevi and Chloe, who got engaged in July, are thought to be planning a summer wedding. They are the first X Factor contestants to get engaged.

In other X Factor related news, Stevi announced he will be releasing his debut solo single in Japan in collaboration with Syco International, Simon's music label.
