Music mogul Simon Cowell looked healthy and strong on a boat trip and ride with his son Eric and partner Lauren Silverman as they enjoyed a sunny vacation in after broke his back earlier this year.  

In pictures obtained by the Daily Mail, the 61-year-old looked relaxed as the group had fun on the water. They played it safe and donned life jackets as they rode on the skis, and the couple was also pictured as they kicked back on a boat with a glass of wine and soaked up the sun.

In August, Cowell had to undergo a six-hour surgery after he broke his back in an electric bike accident. As a result, the X-Factor creator had to cancel all his work for the year… which was likely to have already been affected by the coronavirus pandemic too. 

In October a source told OK! that Cowell was “over the worst” of his injury and “was walking around looking energetic and perfectly happy,” however, a previous source spilled that the injury was actually much worse than initially reported.

Cowell was previously criticized after he temporarily dropped his vegan diet as he recovered from the injury. Earlier in the year, Cowell overhauled his life and look when he ditched animal products and embarked on a new exercise regime, which he put aside after the accident.

Last week it came out that Cowell was considering taking legal action against the manufactures of the bike, and has been pressing Swindon Powertrain about the issue due to safety concerns for other customers. 

According to the Sun, Cowell could take home $13.3 million (£10 million) for medical expenses and loss of earnings but a whistleblower from the manufacturer claimed that the bike was an “accident waiting to happen” due to Cowell being untrained and “It should never have been sold to without him being taught how to use it.”

“I said to my boss, ‘Are you showing Simon how to use this?’ He said he was just dropping it off and I said, ‘Are you serious?’”

Swindon Powertrain told the Mail that “With any device, it is important to read the user manual before attempting to operate, acknowledged by Mr Cowell himself.”

“The EB-01 user manual includes a detailed process of how to familiarise oneself with the performance features and procedures to follow.” but they are “in contact with Mr Cowell’s aides to progress this,” and “the company has acted in good faith at all times.”

After the accident, Cowell tweeted “Some good advice… If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time.”

The accident happened when the bike “flew up in the air and did an accidental wheelie” when he tried to change gears.  Cowell as “surprised by the power” of his new bike and knew straight away that “he was in trouble.”

“And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors. Some of the nicest people I have ever met,” Cowell added at the time. 

As he’s been doing better in recent weeks, Cowell will be returning to work in January with Britain’s Got Talent colleague Amanda Holdren telling the Loose Women panel that “I spoke to him on the phone a few weeks ago and he feels on top of the world and apparently he looks fantastic as well,” but Cowell will not be back for the Christmas special, which means that Diversity’s Ashley Banjo will remain in his place. 

We’re glad Cowell is recovering well!
