Lauren Silverman in Print Swimsuit With Partner Simon Cowell on The Yacht in Barbados 12-30-2020
He’s had a tough 2020 after breaking his back during a horrific August bike accident.
But Simon Cowell is seeing out the year in style in his favourite holiday destination of Barbados.
The music and TV mogul, 61, enjoyed another relaxing day in the sunshine on Wednesday, kicking back on his yacht with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, 43, son Eric, six, and a group of friends.
The music mogul, 61, who is in recovery after having major back surgery following his accident in Los Angeles four months ago, looked healthy and happy as he chatted with the group.
Simon was the centre of attention, holding court on board with his group of friends.
He displayed his impressive physique by stripping down to a pair of swim shorts for the day at sea, while Lauren looked gorgeous in her strapless black and white swimsuit.
The X Factor creator has shed a whopping 4st after adopting a strict vegan diet and overhauling his exercise regime.
The holiday no doubt comes as a welcome break for Simon, who was taken to hospital in August to undergo six hours of surgery after breaking his back.
He had to cancel all his planned TV work for the rest of the year, including Britain’s Got Talent.
Simon continues his recovery during the festive getaway. Sinitta, 52, who once dated the Britain’s Got Talent judge, has disclosed that he is now walking a gruelling five miles a day amid his continued recovery.
She told The Sun: ‘Simon has worked hard at his recovery and told me he’s walking 10,000 steps a day that’s around five miles – way more than he was before the accident. He’s got one of those watches that measures every step.’
It comes after sources claimed last week that Simon was considering legal action against the manufacturers of his electric bike after breaking his back.
The TV mogul and his team are said to be ‘weighing up’ legal options and have been ‘pressing’ the manufacturers, Swindon Powertrain.
One lawyer claimed that a successful lawsuit could see Simon get up to £10million for medical bills and loss of earnings, The Sun reported.
It comes as a whistleblower from the manufacturers reportedly claimed the £20,000 electric bike an ‘accident waiting to happen’ due to Simon’s lack of training.
He told the publication: ‘It should never have been sold to Simon without him being taught how to use it.’
The former employee claimed the Swind EB-01 bike, which can reach up to 60mph and is banned on public roads in the UK, should not be used without specialist training.
