    Simon Cowell has been hospitalised after falling off his bike

    The 60-year-old entertainment mogul was rushed to hospital on Saturday (08.08.20) when he fell from his new electric bicycle whilst taking it for a test drive at his house in Malibu, California


    Simon has suffered injuries to his back, but his representative has insisted he’s “doing fine” and is currently “under observation” from medical staff.

    The representative added to People magazine: “Simon had a fall from his bike on Saturday afternoon whilst testing his new electric bike in the courtyard at his house in Malibu with his family. He hurt his back and was taken to the hospital. He’s doing fine, he’s under observation and is in the best possible hands.”

    Despite his tumble, the ‘X Factor’ boss is otherwise fit and healthy, after he revealed he shed a whopping 60 lbs. through his new health regime, which has seen him committed to a diet of white meat, fruit, and vegetables.

    Simon began his diet last year, and said in May he can’t believe the results he’s been getting.

    He said: "I started this diet a year ago and I've lost 60 pounds."

    Simon's been sticking to his diet whilst in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, but says he's always tempted to slip into old habits when his six-year-old son Eric - whom he has with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman - has a pizza for dinner.

    He added: "I'm doing a bit of cooking. I'm exercising. Funny enough, more during this time as well, sticking to the diet.

    "The only difficult thing is when Eric orders a pizza ?.?.?.? that's the number one thing I miss.”

    Meanwhile, the ‘Got Talent' creator previously said he can't believe how good he looks since losing weight, as he managed to shave several inches from his waistline.

    He said in January: "The most dramatic period was the first month where most of the weight comes off and you look at yourself and think 'wow'. I used to be 36 inch waist and now I've lost four inches. I'm really happy now.

    "You can drink this light beer but you've got to be sensible about quantities. I have loads more energy and feel great.

    "All I do is avoid just red meat - white meat is fine - and I eat loads of vegetables, salads and drink this great beer. I'm on a diet but it doesn't feel like it now because the food I eat is really healthy and I don't find it tedious. If it's boring you won't stick to it."
