The singer told The Sun: ‘Simon has worked hard at his recovery and told me he’s walking 10,000 steps a day that’s around five miles – way more than he was before the accident. He’s got one of those watches that measures every step.’  

Sources recently claimed the TV star was considering legal action against the manufacturers of his electric bike following his injury.

Simon and his team are said to be ‘weighing up’ legal options and have been ‘pressing’ the manufacturers, Swindon Powertrain. 

One lawyer claimed that a successful lawsuit could see Simon get up to £10million for medical bills and loss of earnings, the publication reported.

But a whistleblower from the manufacturers reportedly claimed the £20,000 electric bike an ‘accident waiting to happen’ due to Simon’s lack of training.    

They told the publication: ‘It should never have been sold to Simon without him being taught how to use it.’ 

The former employee claimed the Swind EB-01 bike, which can reach up to 60mph and is banned on public roads in the UK, should not be used without specialist training.

The source continued: ‘I said to my boss, “Are you showing Simon how to use this?” He said he was just dropping it off and I said, “Are you serious?”‘     

A spokesperson for Simon told MailOnline: ‘Simon is understandably extremely concerned for other peoples’ safety in relation to this bike. 

‘We have been pressing the manufacturers about this and will continue to press them, including in relation to the claims of the former member of staff.’ 

A spokesperson for Manufacturers Swindon Powertrain told MailOnline: ‘With any device, it is important to read the user manual before attempting to operate, acknowledged by Mr Cowell himself.   

‘The EB-01 user manual includes a detailed process of how to familiarise oneself with the performance features and procedures to follow.’

They added that they are ‘in contact with Mr Cowell’s aides to progress this’, noting, ‘the company has acted in good faith at all times.’ 

Auditions for Britain’s Got Talent 2021 are set to begin in a matter of weeks, with bosses looking at their options to save the series amid COVID-19 restrictions. 

It had been claimed that contestants are expected to be filmed at locations across the globe to avoid the current Tier 4 rules put in place in London

However, a show insider told MailOnline that bosses have already settled on a UK location, but will continue to assess their options. 

The source said: ‘The auditions are currently planned for a venue at the end of Jan/ early Feb. Obviously if that’s not feasibly safety-wise, producers will look at other options and contingencies.’

Viewers can look forward to seeing Simon return to screens with fellow judges Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams.
