Simon Cowell is still in recovery after the accident he suffered from his electric bike and a six-hour surgery. Reports say that metal was rod placed in his back during the surgery and Cowell's representative disclosed that he is improving.
"Britain's Got Talent" will resume in two weeks with judges Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, and David Walliams.
While in recovery, the "America's Got Talent" judge's spot is being filled by Kelly Clarkson and Kenan Thompson, and co-host Heidi Klum also talked about the possibility of Simon returning for the semi-finals saying:
"He's had about a half a minute. I mean it's been one week and he's already at home, I think that's absolutely incredible."
Sadly for the first time since 2007, it seems Simon will be missing the finals of "Britain's Got Talent," it was reported that Cowell initially planned to take part in the show via video link, but a source told The Mirror:
“Flying halfway across the world is not part of the plan and he has agreed to put his health first.”
"Britain's Got Talent" will resume in two weeks with judges Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, and David Walliams. Due to reports of rivalry between David and Piet Morgan, the latter will not be returning to the show.
The good news is that Cowell is on the road to recovery, taking walks around and attending to work calls, and a source told The Sun:
“One of his friends joked that the metal holding him together makes him The Terminator - which amused Simon.”
Reports also affirm that his girlfriend, Lauren, has been supportive. Besides daily visits, she prepares his favorite Italian bean soup and Cottage Pie with turkey. He is a lucky man.
