Simon Cowell starts his road to recovery with tentative steps

Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell took his first tentative steps yesterday after breaking his back, although he has months of physiotherapy ahead of him, this is a great start,

He is said to be in good spirits a source told People, “He’s taking it easy but doing well,” the source shares, adding that “Simon is already back at work and he’s been working on email on his iPad and speaking to a few on his team.”

“He’s definitely not letting this slow down all the things he’s got going on,” the source explains.

The bike which Simon is thought to have fell from is a CAB Recon bike which is said to be "the most powerful electric bicycle on the planet" and can reach 50mph in five seconds - with a top speed of 60mph.

Apparently it took off going into a wheelie, Simon came off landing on his back.

Simon's close friend Terri Seymour revealed that Simon is in good spirits and said she had spoken with his long-term partner Lauren Silverman on Monday.

Terri said: 'He's on his iPad, making phone calls, working. He actually just took a few steps. Lauren just told me he's already bossing her around.'

Adding: 'It will be some time before Simon is back to his usual self, adding that he's 'going to need a lot of physical therapy'.

Speaking on Extra TV, Terry said:: 'The impact of the fall was one centimetre away from his spinal cord, that is true. It’s bad and he is in agony. It could have been so much so much worse.'

'He was testing the new bike pretty slowly just in the turning circle in the courtyard of the house.

'And as he changed gear, the bike flew up in the air in a huge wheelie and he fell off backwards landing on his back.'

Terri also said that she believes Simon was surprised by how fast his new bike could go and that the accident was very painful.

The bike is very fast and very powerful. I don’t think he realised how powerful it was, and he flew off the bike, landed on his back… obviously was in a lot of pain, in agony.'

Simon will miss the live shows of America's Got Talent so Kelly Clarkson will fill in for hime A source said: “Simon’s really happy Kelly is standing in for him on AGT this week and grateful to her,”
