Simon Cowell has been rushed to hospital after breaking his back.

The 60-year-old was hospitalised on Saturday, after he fell off his electric bike in Malibu.

Simon’s representative told People: “Simon has broken his back and will be having surgery this evening.”


“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,” they continued.

“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.”

The news comes almost three years after Simon was left shaken after he injured himself falling down the stairs at his London home in October 2017.

Simon is due to return to America’s Got Talent next week, as the first live show is set to air on August 11.

But it’s likely Simon will be absent from the judging panel.
