Less than 18 months after breaking his back whilst riding his electric bike, Simon Cowell has once again been seriously injured in ANOTHER cycling accident.
Whilst enjoying a cycle ride near his London home, Simon is reportedly ‘lucky to be alive’ after he was sent flying over the handlebars of his e-bike.
Simon was rushed to hospital on Thursday with suspected concussion, facial cuts and a broken arm after he was catapulted into the road at 20mph.
Passersby rushed to help as Simon was covered in blood after the horrific incident. They stopped the traffic and called an ambulance, comforting the dazed star until paramedics arrived at the scene.
A source from the scene explained that blood was gushing from his face, likening him to something from the Phantom of the Opera.
They went on to tell The Sun: ‘Simon is lucky to be alive. He was pedalling along, with his electric motor on, when the wheels suddenly went from under him after hitting a wet patch.
‘He slipped and went flying over the handlebars into the middle of the road.’
After being taken in an ambulance to the nearby Chelsea and Westminster hospital, Simon was X-rayed and eventually released with rest orders – and has since been seen with a lime green cast up to his shoulder.
Simon’s seven-year-old son Eric reportedly chose his dad’s cast and has already been busy customising it! He has signed his name and drawn their two dogs, Squiddly and Diddly on the bright green cast!
Despite this being his second nasty experience with an e-bike, Simon insists he’s not ditching the machine — but he will now start wearing a helmet.
Simon is now recovering at home with his family.
Please join us in sending him warm wishes and a speedy recovery!

I don’t think you and bike’s go together Simon but glad your doing OK take care xx
Get well Soon Simon and please get a Helmet before you use your electric bike again, you were so very lucky to have escaped with minor injuries xxx
Glad to hear you are OK. Maybe, in the future, you should consider one of those 3 wheeler bikes. I mean, like me, you aren’t getting any younger and your reflexes are getting probably a bit slower. Anyways…luv ya and be careful. You’re the ONLY judge I like on American Idol and America’s Got Talent. You are SOOOOO funny!!!! Shoot me a “HI” sometime and make my day cause at 75, I don’t get many good ones anymore… 🙂

OMG! So sorry to hear about your accident Simon. I am an avid cyclist, as well, and I know things can happen very quickly whilst riding. It is especially nasty riding on wet surfaces. Please, please, always wear your helmet. I do not like wearing a helmet either, but I do because it can save your life. Get a helmet that is lightweight, yet high safety rating, and have fun with it, buy a crazy colour or design, and get used to always wearing the helmet. I was so upset to hear the news, my dear friend, and am so happy you are alright. Give your body time to heal and get lots of rest and sleep. Healing takes time Luv. I am praying for your speedy recovery and hope you are not suffering a lot of pain. A cast can feel so awkward and uncomfortable and at some point, it will become itchy. Thank goodness you are a strong and healthy fellow. Please give yourself time to heal. I am thinking about you and praying God is watching over you. I know God has sent his angels to keep you safe and comfortable. Get well quickly, and please, get lots of rest and sleep. Thank you. God is with you, always.
Simon glad you’re making good recovery and desideing to wear bike protection
Which I think that very sensible too do
Especially when you’re 62 years old man with little son Eric age 7
