Music mogul Simon Cowell has tested positive for Covid-19.
The 62-year-old – who broke his arm in an e-bike accident earlier this month – was forced to miss filming for the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ auditions in London on Thursday because he is isolating at home.
A spokesperson for Cowell told MailOnline: “Simon was unable to attend filming today as he was isolating at home after testing positive for Covid-19.”
Cowell recently admitted he had been a “bit of a nutter” following his second e-bike accident after he narrowly avoided serious injury because he wasn’t wearing a helmet.
He said: “‘I’m OK. I’m feeling much better thank you…
“I’m a bit of a nutter. I’ll definitely wear a helmet next time.”
Simon Cowell broke his back 18 months ago
The incident came 18 months after Cowell broke his back after coming off his bike in Los Angeles, which led to a metal rod being inserted.
He said at the time: “It could have been a lot worse. When I saw the X-ray, I really nearly could have smashed my spine to pieces, so I literally wouldn’t have been able to walk.”
