The 62-year-old has at least bowed to concerns, stating that he will wear a helmet, after the 2nd, and latest crash left him with a broken arm.
‘I’m OK. I’m feeling much better thank you. It happened just round the corner…I’m a bit of a nutter. I’ll definitely wear a helmet next time.’
With this being the second time the Britain’s Got Talent star has had an accident on his electric bike – only a year and a half since he broke his back on the first fall.
In a sign of his improvement, Simon was seen out and about with his fiancee Lauren Silverman, wearing a bright green cast showing a signature by his son Eric. Eric signed his name in black, and placed his signature next to images of the family’s dogs Diddly and Squiddly.
The celebrity is however, not likely to ditch the bike, to Lauren’s dismay.
According to The Sun, a source said:
‘Simon is as stubborn as a mule. He won’t give up his precious E bikes for love nor money….He actually had his bike accident when Lauren was in New York – the poor thing was obviously beside herself with worry…She’d rather him not ride again, clearly, but there’s no use telling Simon Cowell what to do…The compromise is that he will ride only when wearing a helmet. He’s lucky to be alive and shouldn’t push his luck.’
