According to Amanda Holden, she feared Simon Cowell was going to die from his recent accident
Amanda Holden feared Simon Cowell was going to die after his recent accident.
The 60-year-old music mogul broke his back after falling off an electric motorcycle in August, and Amanda initially feared it could have been "fatal".
She shared: "It was gut-wrenching. I got a text in the night. I couldn't sleep after. I felt physically sick as I didn't know how bad it was.
"I wanted him to be alive, but I also wanted him to be able to walk as he's such a good friend."
Amanda is doing her best to support Simon, and she's also been in touch with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman.
The 'Britain's Got Talent' star told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "I sent him some Lego, cashmere socks and books and butterscotch Angel Delight, his favourite.
"Lauren is keeping his spirits up and cooking turkey shepherd's pies. A producer spoke to him and says he sounds amazing, really well."
However, TV insiders expect Simon will miss the 'Britain's Got Talent' final as he continues his recovery from surgery.
A source said: "He will not return to the panel in time for the final. He's obviously a massive loss but we are happy with the very talented judging panel."
Meanwhile, David Walliams recently confessed he was scared of catching coronavirus after shaking hands with 'Britain's Got Talent' fans.
The ITV talent show held its auditions back in January before the UK's lockdown, and the judge admitted he regrets coming into contact with others, as he fears he might have helped spread the disease.
He said: "To be honest, when we were filming the show back in January I can't remember anyone even mentioning coronavirus.
"If we had known back then that there was going to be this huge pandemic we wouldn't have been walking around shaking everyone's hands!"
