After months of resting and rumors of possible retirement, Simon Cowell is set to return to British TV screens in January 2021.
Simon Cowell is, reportedly, returning to Britain’s Got Talent following his tragic back injury in August.
After months of recovering at his Los Angeles home, the 61-year-old TV personality has guaranteed the producers of his exciting comeback.
An insider told The Sun that Simon was already disappointed having to miss out on BGT this year.
But on the bright side, he’s been focused on getting better and will not leave the judging panel anytime soon.
“He’s come on in leaps and bounds recently, thanks to letting his body heal, a healthy diet, and some California sun.”
The dad-of-one is also enjoying being surrounded by his family.
Despite the good things, Simon Cowell loves his job and is said to be “raring to go,” especially since Britain’s Got Talent “offers so much joy and light entertainment during these dark times.”
“The panel is all excited to have him back, though they thought Ashley did a great job.”
It is unclear if Simon Cowell will also be back on America’s Got Talent.
Simon’s tragic accident
In August, the music mogul broke his back after falling off an electric bike. His son Eric was there to witness the entire thing.
At that time, he took to Twitter to joke, “Some good advice. If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time.”
He got surgery for it, including having a rod inserted in his back.
Several reports said there have been complications, but Simon Cowell appeared to be keeping his spirits up with his friend Sinitta, 51, who gave an update on his progress last month.
Speaking to Entertainment Daily, the artist said, “He’s taken some steps, so he has reassured himself that he’s not paralyzed. But he’s got to take his time and get well.”
Breaking his life rule
Simon Cowell, who lost 60 pounds after changing his lifestyle last year, has, reportedly, started eating different healthy foods, breaking his strict vegan diet.
This is because he needed to rebuild his strength after the accident and to recover from the surgery.
Sinitta told The Sun, “That’s the wisest thing. He was bloated and stressed, then he was too thin and exhausted.”
“Now, he is fit and relaxed. He’s found his sweet spot. He sounds relieved and exhilarated. The sea air is so healing and rejuvenating.”
