Simon Cowell is best known for his sharp tongue in his role as one of television’s best-loved talent show judges. But in the last year the music mogul has made headlines for different reasons, following a dramatic weight loss transformation. The Britain’s Got Talent creator slimmed down following a health scare - so how did he do it?
Simon reportedly decided to overhaul his diet after he had an accident at home in LA.
The celebrity judge collapsed and fell down the stairs in 2017, and was rushed to hospital with fears that he had broken his neck.
The star made a full recovery, but it was a much-needed wake-up call for Simon who admitted he had not been particularly healthy beforehand.
Simon has previously admitted he loves pizza, hamburgers and spaghetti, and regularly stayed up late rather than getting a proper night’s sleep.

The fall was said to be down to Simon having very low blood pressure, and led him to completely change his lifestyle in a bid to get healthy.
The 60-year-old has previously spoken out about the changes he made to his diet.
Simon switched to a vegan diet after seeing a specialist for some health advice.
Talking to Extra in May 2020, Simon revealed that he had lost around four stone by following the meat- and dairy-free plan.
"I think I have dropped, since I started this diet a year ago, 60 pounds,” he said in the interview.
