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.

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.

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...”

The pair work together on BGT alongside Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.
