Simon Cowell

has been left fuming after contestants on his British reality TV show "" trashed his luxury villa in Spain over the weekend. The music mogul is mentor to a group of hopefuls in this year's contest, but he was left aghast when they arrived at his property in Marbella on Sunday, August 29 and immediately wreaked havoc.

He was awoken by their noise in the early hours, and they are said to have destroyed a $7,500 Persian rug and damaged antiques. And Cowell has vowed to make the wannabes pay for the breakages. He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "Yes, they did wake me up. And any damage will have to be paid out of their first royalty cheque if they make it - to teach them a lesson."
