Night fever

White trousers, disco balls and scarily high male vocals could be making a come back if Simon Cowell has anything to do with it, according to reports.

Allegedly Simon Cowell, known as much for his high waisted trousers as his cutting remarks to talent show hopefuls, has been wining and dining Robert Stigwood, the owner of the rights to the Saturday Night Fever screenplay in an attempt to remake the film for a 21st century audience.

It is rumoured that a remake would see Zac Efron, of High School Musical fame, step into the tight white suit of John Travolta.
