Simon Cowell is hospitalised in London after suffering another crash on his electric bike.

Simon Cowell was taken to hospital in London last week after suffering another crash while riding his electric bike.

The 62-year-old entertainment mogul broke his back in summer 2020 while cycling in the US, forcing him to take a time out from his TV commitments as he recovered.

According to The Sun, Cowell was cycling his bike at around 20mph - without wearing a helmet - last week when he suffered an accident, flipping over his handlebars and landing in the middle of the road.

"Simon is lucky to be alive," a witness told the newspaper. "He was pedalling along, with his electric motor on, when the wheels suddenly went from under him after hitting a wet patch.

"He slipped and went flying over the handlebars into the middle of the road.

"Stupidly, Simon wasn't wearing a helmet, and blood was pouring from his face - he looked like something from Phantom of the Opera.

"Three kindly passers-by jumped into action, and stopped the traffic so he wouldn't be run over.

"After being ambulanced to hospital and given an X-ray, 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 is currently in the UK filming the new series of Britain's Got Talent for ITV.
