SIMON Cowell showed off his impressive 20lb weight loss in Hollywood last night.
The music mogul looked happy and healthy with the trim new figure he’s achieved by going vegan as he posed on the red carpet ahead of the America’s Got Talent quarter finals.
Simon, 59, knew he had to make a drastic lifestyle change after falling down the stairs in the middle of the night in October 2017.
He was rushed to hospital and told he had to stop binging on sausage rolls, hamburgers and his favourite jam tarts made by his personal chefs.
Doctors warned against him living “like a vampire” by staying awake each day until 8am — saying it had to stop.
Since converting to veganism Simon has lost almost one-and-a-half stone and taken years off his looks.
He cheekily told The Sun’s Dan Wootton earlier this year: “If I was on a one to ten scale of being handsome, I was an eight and now I’ve gone to an 11.”
On a more serious note, he added: “Within 24 hours I changed my diet and I’ve not looked back since. You feel better, you look better.
“I cut out a lot of the stuff I shouldn’t have been eating and that was primarily meat, dairy, wheat, sugar — those were the four main things.”
“Once you get into a pattern I’ve found it quite enjoyable. It has helped me sleep and I wake up feeling less tired.
“I noticed a massive difference in how I felt in about a week.
“I have more energy and focus and it wasn’t difficult.
“I don’t like to use the word diet because that’s the reason I never went on a diet before — the word diet makes me miserable.”
Simon’s been kept busy with Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year before launching straight into Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions where the likes of Susan Boyle, Stavros Flatley and Connie Talbot will go head to head this autumn.
