Simon Cowell broke his back after falling from his new electric bicycle in the courtyard of his Los Angeles home.

Cowell, who has a six-year-old son Eric with his partner Lauren Silverman, was testing the new bike when the accident took place.

The 60-year-old music mogul known for hit shows such as The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent underwent a surgery.

According to a spokesperson, Cowell is now under observation and is in the best possible hands.

Piers Morgan wished Cowell well and a speedy recovery on Twitter.

“So sorry to hear this. Sounds a very nasty accident. I wish Simon a successful operation and a full & speedy recovery,” Morgan wrote.

Cowell previously had a fall in 2017 when he fell down the stairs at his London home.

"Sometimes we get a reminder that we're not invincible and this was certainly mine," he told the Sun newspaper at the time. "It was a huge shock."

"They think I fainted because I had low blood pressure and so I have got to really take good care of myself to sort that out," he said.

"After all I am a dad and have more responsibility than ever."
