Previous owner Christian Levett believes he accidentally brought in the soul of Antinous, lover of Hadrian, in a statue in 2014.

He said: “It was delivered in a crate.

“When I was locking up, I heard the sound of heavy objects being knocked over from the drawing room where Antinous was still lying in his box.

“The same happened the next two nights. But there was nobody there.”

Hedge-fund billionaire Christian, 47, took the statue to a museum. But Antinous is still said to roam the home.

A source said: “Simon believes in spirits so he’s been freaked out by this story.

“I don’t think he was aware when he moved in. He might have to call a ghostbuster.”

A neighbour added: “I know when Christian lived there the family heard unexplained noises. There’d be a bump from a bedroom then the next night a noise from downstairs.”

Antinous was known as the most beautiful boy in the Roman Empire and became Hadrian’s lover in 128BC. He drowned or killed himself.

Cowell has told The Sun about doors banging at his old home in South West London which freaked out his mum, dad and dog.

Simon said: “The land where my house was on was part of a bigger house. It got so bad they called in an exorcist.”

He also says he saw a ghost during The X Factor in 2015.
