Simon Cowell rushed to hospital
SIMON COWELL has been hospitalised after falling down the stairs at his London home — putting his appearance on The X Factor this weekend in doubt.
According to The Sun, Cowell, 58, was seen being transported from his house on a stretcher at around 8am this morning wearing a neck brace.
A source told the newspaper: ‘It’s been a scary morning. It was very early and Simon was going down his stairs to get some hot milk because he couldn’t sleep.
‘He fainted and is thought to have fallen down the stairs.’
It is unclear if Simon’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman and son Eric were at home during the incident.
Simon is scheduled to appear as a judge on The X Factor this Saturday, when the live shows are set to kick off.
But currently he is thought to still be in hospital undergoing tests.
Simon has not been having a good year healthwise. Earlier this summer, he had to pull out of X Factor auditions and he has collapsed from nervous exhaustion in the past .
