Simon Cowell announces he wants his five-year-old son Eric to leave school when he's just 10 years-old.

Simon also wants to see homework banned.

Talking to Extra TV's Terri Seymour, Simon said: "Listen if I can get him out at 10 to come and work for me then I would. "I was better off out of school than I was in."

"But I didn’t have that major stress about homework, because I would just throw it away.

“A healthy, happy kid is more important than an over-educated, stressed kid.”

Simon has previously said in the past that he would love his son to officially take over the reins of his entertainment empire one day, and last year he gave Eric a taste of what’s to come as he let his mini me have control of Syco offices as part of Unicef UK’s World Children’s Day.

“My dream would be to see him one day running the company I have built. And the most important lesson I have learned is what children teach you. They all have a voice.”
