Family man: Simon Cowell has been seen in public for the first time since breaking his back, 10 weeks ago, as he stepped out with his partner and son

His outing comes a week after it was reported that he is ‘feeling great’ as he recovers from surgery and focuses on being in ‘top form’ for his big return for BGT in 2021.

Simon certainly looked on top form as he emerged with his family, sporting a charcoal coloured top, plimsolls and a white cut off shorts.  

Despite his happy and healthy look, his outing comes amid claims the star could be ‘out of action’ for up to six months due to his injury, reports The Sun.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Simon was advised not to fly back to the final by doctors. He is walking a lot and swimming and feeling great – but focusing on being on top form for the start of filming for Britain’s Got Talent 2021 in January.’

However the Sun reported that it had been ‘a rough few weeks’, with Simon at first thinking he would have recovered from the procedure in a few weeks. 

A source told the publication: ‘Instead, he’s had a setback from surgery to fuse two vertebrae and it has proven more complicated than a standard break.’

No slowing him down! Despite his injury, Simon was storming ahead as he strolled through the car park with his partner and son 

They added: ‘But he’s also quite vain and the idea of going on national TV with no studio make-up, and while on heavy-duty medication, didn’t appeal. 

‘So, unfortunately, he had to decline [BGT] producers’ requests.’

And despite the alleged complications, Simon appears to be keeping his spirits up with pal Sinitta, 51, giving an update on his progress at the end of September.

Speaking to Entertainment Daily, Sinitta said: ‘It was a serious accident. So for people who love him, like me, it was very, very scary. He’s taken some steps, so he has reassured himself that he’s not paralysed.

The So Macho singer added: ‘But he’s got to take his time and get well.’ Since injuring his back, Simon has had to pull out of his shows Britain’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent, as he took some time out of the spotlight to recover.

He had been hoping to be well enough to film the BGT Christmas Special, but it’s recently been revealed that he’d been forced to pull out.
