Simon Cowell, 60, had to undergo surgery recently after hurting himself in a fall. Now a friend of his has given a positive update on his health and healing.
Amanda Holden, 49, took to Instagram to share that she was thinking about Cowell on Sunday. She shared: “Luckily I’m able to write that he’s had his operation and he’s doing really well.”
Holden also revealed that she and her family were wishing the “America’s Got Talent (AGT)” executive producer a “speedy recovery.” She ended her post by sending Cowell’s family love from her kinfolk.
WHY WAS SIMON IN HOSPITAL
Holden is a fellow judge on “Britain's Got Talent (BGT),” alongside Cowell. The AGT judge underwent a five-hour surgery after on Saturday after his fall at the courtyard of his home in Malibu, California.

Some good advice... If you buy an electric trail bike,read the manual before you ride it for the first time. I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages. And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors. Some of the nicest people I have ever met. Stay safe everyone Simon.
HIS INJURIES WERE BAD
Cowell allegedly landed on his back when he fell from an electric bicycle he was trying out. The source added: “The injuries are bad but he's also been told he was lucky.”
The star has been at home with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, her son Adam, 14, and the couple’s son Eric, 6. During a 2008 interview with “Hello!” magazine, Holden confessed her true feelings for Cowell.
HOLDEN’S CRUSH ON COWELL
She said, at the time: “I have got a crush on him. It’s a bizarre thing.” Holden also referenced how Cheryl Cole also made the same confession too.
She explained why she was attracted to him stating: “He has this charisma and charm which you can’t fight.” Holden also admitted that it was impossible to stay upset with her fellow judge.
AMANDA’S DAUGHTER’S ASSUMPTIONS
In May 2020, she took part in an Instagram Live promotion of her new charity NHS single. However, her daughter Hollie, 8, hilariously interrupted her claiming Cowell had split from Silverman.
The interruption came while the judge was discussing singing her song in front of Cowell. Hollie responded by asking if the couple hadn’t split.

I will be forever grateful to the NHS, I’m sure we all have our own story as to what makes our health service so special. Doctors, nurses, carers, midwives and all the other wonderful people who makes the NHS work. You’re all amazing! . The rainbow is a strong symbol of hope to people across the UK right now and to put this song out with all proceeds going to support the @nhscharitiestogether is my little way of supporting all those wonderful people who keep us safe and make us healthy. . Tune into @thisisheart at 8am this morning to listen to the song’s first play 🌈Link in bio to stream the song! . 🌈 #AllInThisTogether #OverTheRainbow
WHY HOLLIE THOUGHT THEY SPLIT
Holden later explained that her daughter made the assumption after seeing Silverman board a plane to visit her eldest son. It seems the child thought Cowell’s girlfriend was leaving for good.

HOW CLOSE ARE THEY
During the same month, Holden also admitted that she and her boss were quite close. She said: "We tell each other everything, I'm very close to him...”
