He's lost more than 20lbs after becoming a vegan and overhauling his lifestyle.  

Yet Simon Cowell appeared to relax his strict diet on Friday night as he was seen enjoying a cigarette and a bottle of his favourite 'skinny lager' as he left the Shooting Star Ball with partner Lauren Silverman in London.

The music mogul, 60, appeared in good spirits as he smoked and sipped on the 89 calorie alcohol beverage in the back of his chauffeur driven car.
