After being rushed to the hospital last week, X Factor‘s Simon Cowell missed the weekend’s live shows of the show and it was confirmed he will return to live shows this weekend.
The judge fell down the stairs in his London mansion and suffered a concussion. After the fall, he was taking some time to recover. A source close to Cowell told ET that he “was going down his stairs to get some hot milk because he was not feeling well and was dizzy. As he was going back up the stairs, he fainted and fell backwards.”
Fellow X Factor UK judge Sharon Osbourne shared an update on Cowell’s health on Wednesday’s episode of The Talk revealing that he is “doing much better [and] going to be OK” after his hospitalization.
In an interview with The Sun on Tuesday Cowell spoke of his scary ordeal.
“I know I was very lucky I didn’t hurt myself seriously. It could have been a lot worse. Sometimes we get a reminder that we’re not invincible, and this was certainly mine. It was a huge shock.”
Simon, who shares a 3-year-old son Eric with partner Lauren Silverman, also spoke of needing to take care of himself.
“They think I fainted because I had low blood pressure. So, I have got to really take good care of myself to sort that out. After all, I am a dad and have more responsibility than ever.”
