Simon Cowell looks slimmer than ever as he joins Britain’s Got Talent judges and Ant and Dec for glam shoot

SIMON Cowell looks slimmer than ever as he joins Britain's Got Talent judges and Ant and Dec for glam shoot before lockdown.

The 60-year-old looked in good shape as he wore a loose-fitted suit for the launch snaps.

The X-Factor and Britain’s Got Talent judge has lost a massive 20Ibs after ditching unhealthy eating and adopting a healthier vegan lifestyle.

He kept his glasses on for the shoot alongside fellow judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.

Hosts Ant and Dec grinned alongside the BGT judges ahead of its return.

The ITV talent show bosses announced it would still be airing the audition rounds as they were all pre-recorded - but the coronavirus has meant that the lives are postponed.

Meanwhile Ant and Dec have said that Britain’s Got Talent will return to the live shows “later this year” after being cancelled.

The Sun exclusively revealed that Simon was “devastated” to hear charities, such as Shooting Star Children's hospice, were struggling to continue their services due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In his own column for the paper, Simon said that he would be taking on £500,000 of the deficit faced by Shooting Star, which he is Vice-President of, and he would also continue his pledges that were already in place.

He said: “I have also decided with my team at Syco to donate $1,000,000 (£800,000) towards the immediate needs of some of the most vulnerable people impacted by this virus, and this will be split between Feeding Britain and Feeding America, where I work and live.

“I don’t like celebrities telling people what to do, and I know this is a hugely difficult time for so many — worries about family, health, jobs, paying the mortgage and feeding their family are at the forefront of people’s minds.

“But there are still other people in business and in entertainment with resources available. So today it’s those people I’m urging to rise to this enormous challenge.”

Yesterday Simon took his partner Lauren Silverman and their son Eric for a bike ride in Los Angeles.

After admitting he was "terrified" of getting the deadly virus, Simon made sure he and his brood wore protective masks as they got in some exercise in Malibu.

Simon, who lives in Los Angeles with his family, has been strict about protecting himself amid the pandemic.

He recently told The Sun: “I am terrified about it. I have worn masks for ages.

“When I cycle around town I wear a mask."
