Simon Cowell gave a thumbs-up as he left his West London home after injuring his arm during a reported electric bike crash.

The music mogul and Britain's Got Talent judge, 62, was pictured with his fiancee Lauren Silverman as they departed the property on Wednesday.

His left arm was in a yellow cast and he wore aviator sunglasses and a black puffer jacket.

Cowell, who lives between London and California, is said to have taken a tumble over the bike’s handlebars while out riding near his home, The Sun said.

The accident is his second on an electric bike, following a crash in August 2020 in the US, which saw him break his back and undergo six hours of surgery which involved having a metal rod inserted.

A source told The Sun that The X Factor boss was "lucky to be alive" and that passers-by had stopped to help him.

He was taken to hospital and given an X-ray, the source said, adding: "Simon was eventually released that evening — his arm in a yellow cast all the way up to the shoulder — and told to rest.

"Despite this being his second great escape, Simon insists he's not ditching the bike, but he will start wearing a helmet."

Cowell recently became engaged to long-term partner Silverman, with whom he shares son Eric.

The music executive is back in London to film Britain’s Got Talent alongside Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, with the show slated to return to screens in the spring.

The ITV series was cancelled in 2021 due to the pandemic.
