Simon Cowell's partner Lauren Silverman enjoys a bicycle ride with son hours before star broke his back on electric bike

SIMON Cowell's partner Lauren Silverman enjoyed a bicycle ride with their son Eric just hours before the star broke his back on an electric bike.

It was revealed earlier today that the Britain's Got Talent and X Factor boss, 60, had broken his back after falling from his electric bike at his home in Malibu.

Simon was rushed to hospital and had surgery on Saturday evening, but just hours before the terrible accident, Lauren and the couple's son Eric, six, enjoyed a ride around Malibu on their non-electric bicycles.

Lauren, 43, was seen wearing black exercise leggings and a black T-shirt, with a mask over her mouth and sunglasses.

Meanwhile Eric wore a helmet, mask and sunglasses to make sure he was protected on all fronts as he cycled along behind his mother.

The pair were joined by Lauren's son Adam, from her marriage to ex-husband Andrew Silverman.

Simon's representative previously said in a statement: "Simon has broken his back and will be having surgery this evening."

They went on: "Simon had a fall from his bike on Saturday afternoon whilst testing his new electric bike in the courtyard at his house in Malibu with his family.

"He hurt his back and was taken to the hospital. He’s doing fine, he’s under observation and is in the best possible hands."

Simon is due to return to America's Got Talent next week, with the first live show set to air on Tuesday August 11.

The Britain's Got Talent star has spent a year getting into shape after a health scare.

In December, he told how he had dropped four waist sizes.

But he has shed even more weight while continuing his healthy regime in lockdown in Los Angeles.
