THE OUCH FACTOR

SIMON Cowell has been rushed to hospital for surgery on his back after falling off an electric bike.

The 60-year-old X Factor judge was hospitalised on Saturday when he fell off his electric bike while out on a ride in Malibu.

Simon's representative told People: "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's girlfriend Lauren Silverman was also spotted on her non-electric bicycle in Malibu just hours earlier.

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