Amanda Holden reveals she feared pal Simon Cowell was going to die from horror bike accident

AMANDA Holden has revealed she feared Simon Cowell was going to die from his horror accident.

ITV insiders believe Simon will miss the BGT final after breaking his back falling off his electric bike.

Amanda said: “I honestly panicked it could be fatal.

"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.”

Simon has had rods inserted in his back and an ITV 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.”

Amanda is in touch with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman since he doesn’t have a phone.

She added: “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.

“Maybe he can record a segment for the final or do a Zoom.”
