Simon Cowell will be out of action for the foreseeable future after breaking his back, according to insiders close to the star. It's absolutely horrific, we're all devastated and anxious about Simon but the positive thing is that he's in good spirits and Lauren says that slowly he's on the mend. "It's going to take him weeks, and maybe months, to get back to where he was". However he has been advised to rest so he can make a full recovery, adding that ignoring doctor's orders could result in very bad news long term. The beloved critic took to Twitter to deliver news of his safety after an e-bike accident left him with a broken back.

Simon Cowell has left anxious fans in fits of laughter through his recent statement.

The Bicycle Association said in a statement,"The BA, on behalf of the United Kingdom cycling industry, would stress that what are usually referred to as e-bikes for sale in United Kingdom cycle shops have nearly nothing in common in technical or safety terms with the electric motorbike which was ridden by Simon Cowell at the time of his accident".
