“Britain’s Got Talent” and “America’s Got Talent” judge Simon Cowell says he feels better than ever after his back injury.
Simon Cowell has said that the break in his back “wasn’t that bad” and that he has fully recovered after his accident last year.
The reality TV judge injured himself when he fell off an electric bicycle outside his Malibu, California, home in August.
His treatment included a six-hour surgery that included inserting a metal rod in his back, and doctors said he was lucky.
After missing Britain’s Got Talent and much of America’s Got Talent last year, Cowell, 61, is now preparing for his return to the U.S.
Speaking to U.S. weekly entertainment magazine People, he said, “I’ve got to be honest with you, it wasn’t actually that bad to break your back.
“I mean, it wasn’t great for three to four weeks, but after that you get through it.”
Cowell said he has been doing a lot of exercise and feels “better now than he did before the accident.”
