Simon Cowell undergoes surgery after falling off his electric bike in Malibu

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

‘Simon has broken his back and will be having surgery this evening,’ his representative revealed to People

The rep explained: ‘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.’

That day his girlfriend Lauren Silverman was seen riding her non-electric bicycle down a sunny street in Malibu.

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 told The Sun in May he can’t believe the results he’s been getting, saying: ‘I started this diet a year ago and I’ve lost 60 pounds.’

He has been sticking to his diet whilst in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, but says he is always tempted to slip into old habits when his six-year-old son Eric – whom he has with Lauren – 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 America’s 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 shared with The Sun: ‘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.’

Referring to Corona Premium Lite he said: ‘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,’ Simon said. ‘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.’
