Simon Cowell gives £20 to street beggar

This is the moment Simon Cowell gives £20 to a street beggar after a shopping trip at Harrods.

X-Factor boss, Cowell, was filmed taking out a wad of notes and give money to an elderly lady who approached him asking for money.

The 59-year-old dished out the cash following a two hour shopping trip to London's famous Harrods store, on Saturday July 27.

He was filmed performing the good deed by 50-year-old onlooker, Tony Howard, a chauffeur who was waiting to pick up clients from outside the Knightsbridge department store.
