Speaking to The Sun, the neighbour continued his rant, saying: “I wrote a sign on my door saying, ‘Please do not park in front of my house’ and they still did it.

“But I’m always unhappy with Cowell – he’s a t**t. Who is he? Some prat – the X Factor guy? I lost my temper last night and I’ll do it again – do not park near my frontage. It happens every night.

“I don’t give a s*** about him, I hate him… I’m sick of his face.”

Will Lloyd, who witnessed the altercation, added to the publication: “I was gobsmacked. I have never seen anything like it.

“This bloke was properly furious. He was going crazy. It was scary – he was absolutely ranting while waving a golf club about. He started screaming, ‘What is he even famous for?’”
