Simon Cowell is reportedly considering investing in a £30 million Barbados mansion so he can spend more time in his favourite island paradise.

The telly mogul has been a regular visitor to the Caribbean hot spot for years , forking out a small fortune renting holiday accommodation there.

However, The Sun now reports Simon is considering buying a house there so he can have a permanent base in Barbados.

He's said to be considering putting in a bid on a spectacular £30 million property, which has previously hosted royals Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as well as celebs such as Tom Cruise and Rihanna.

It was also previously used as Simon's base for judges' houses on a series of The X Factor, so the reality TV mogul will be familiar with the property.

The house is going to be auctioned with a guide price of around £30 million

A source told the publication : "Since breaking his back, he’s been reassessing his priorities and has been enjoying a slower, more laid pace of life

"He’s sold his pad in LA, and wants a permanent base in Barbados where he can totally unwind and get away from everything."

The beachfront home, which is set to be auctioned off next month, boasts a cinema, gym and a spa as well as a large swimming, hot tub, fitness centre, lush gardens and private beach access.

The mansion also comes with 19 full-time staff – including an estate manager, butlers, chefs, maids, gardeners and security.

It's priced at £31.5 million and the estate agent describes it as "the most luxurious beachfront villa in the Caribbean".

He sold his Beverly Hills mansion for $14.5million (£11million) last month, and is believed to be living full time in Malibu.

Simon is recovering after breaking his back in a cycling accident in August.

He'd bought himself a new electric bike and suffered a horrifying injury to his spine after falling off.

The telly star underwent surgery and had to miss the Britain's Got Talent finals as he was unable to fly back to Britain.

However, he has since been pictured back on his feet walking for the first time since the accident.

A source previously told The Mirror exclusively: "Simon was advised not to fly back to the [UK for the BGT] final by doctors.

"He is walking a lot and swimming and feeling great - but focusing on being on top form for 2021."

Diversity star and BGT alum Ashley Banjo stepped up to the Britain's Got Talent judging panel to replace Simon while he was off work.
