Simon Cowell gets back on his electric bike without a helmet after breaking his back in horror accident

SIMON Cowell has got back on his electric bike after breaking his back in a horror accident last year.

The 61-year-old star was spotted without a helmet as he cruised through the streets of West London.

The music mogul looked thinner than ever on the outing having recently lost four stone.

His slim legs were on display in a pair of white shorts, with Simon also bundling up in a padded black jacket.

He kept safe with a protective face mask as he embraced the alternative mode of transport to get around the capital.

Simon was almost left paralysed when he fell from his electric bike at his Malibu home last year.


He broke three vertebrae, missing his spinal cord by a centimetre, in the horrendous fall.

The star fell backwards and smashed down on to a concrete floor in front of his horrified son Eric, six, and partner Lauren Silverman's teenage son Adam from a previous relationship.

The star was rushed to Providence Saint John’s hospital in Santa Monica, a short drive from his £18million beachside property in Malibu, where he underwent his surgery.


He later confessed to fans that he had not read the instruction manual before trying out his new toy.

Breaking his silence, Simon tweeted at the time: "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.."

He added: "And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors. Some of the nicest people I have ever met. Stay safe everyone."

Thankfully, it hasn't appeared to have left any lasting damage either physically or mentally, with Simon unafraid to get back on the saddle now that he has fully recovered from his injuries.
