SIMON Cowell “will do his first ever charity walk after recovering 110% from his broken back”.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge, 61, broke his back last year following an accident on a motorised bike in America.

Simon has previously stated he’s “fitter than ever” after recovering from the serious injury – and now it’s been reported he will take part in a charity walk to raise money for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices.
A source told The Mirror : “Simon is back to full fitness and has been telling pals he feels 110 percent.
“He jumped at the chance to do the charity walk as it’s a cause so close to his heart. He has a contacts book bulging with celebrity friends and rest assured they will all be getting calls about donating.”
The paper reports he has raised nearly £30,000 in a few days.

Simon was almost left paralysed when he fell from his electric bike at his Malibu home last year.
The X Factor judge also explained that the damage could have been far more life-threatening.
Speaking to promote America’s Got Talent, he said: “I was a millimetre away from just cutting my back in half. So I consider myself lucky.
“Weirdly, it was a good thing that it happened. I didn’t get Covid because I wasn’t able to travel and I probably would’ve done my fair share last year.”

Simon broke three vertebrae, missing his spinal cord by a centimetre, in the horrendous fall.
The star fell backwards and smashed down on to a concrete floor in front of his horrified son Eric, six, and partner Lauren Silverman’s teenage son Adam from a previous relationship.
The star was rushed to Providence Saint John’s hospital in Santa Monica, a short drive from his £18million beachside property in Malibu, where he underwent his surgery.
He later confessed to fans that he had not read the instruction manual before trying out his new toy.

Breaking his silence, Simon tweeted at the time: “Some good advice…If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time.
“I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages..”
He added: “And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors. Some of the nicest people I have ever met. Stay safe everyone.”
Thankfully, it hasn’t appeared to have left any lasting damage either physically or mentally, with Simon unafraid to get back on the saddle now that he has fully recovered from his injuries.
