Simon Cowell ‘unlikely’ to return to X Factor tonight after horror fall – as doctor visits him at home

SIMON Cowell's return to the X Factor tonight is in doubt following his horror fall at his home.

The music mogul fell down the stairs at his London mansion on Friday after a mystery collapse and was forced to miss last night's first live show.

There had been hope Simon, 58, would be well enough to return to the ITV show tonight, but an insider has now claimed it doesn't look likely.

The source told the Mirror Online: "The decision is not 100 per cent yet but it's very likely he'll sit out this one on doctor's advice."

"Alesha Dixon is ready to step in as a substitute judge if necessary."

The Britain's Got Talent judge has already appeared on this year's series having stood in for judges Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger during the audition stages.

Instead, the Boys and Girls categories sang for survival – having originally been set to perform tonight – and Spencer Sutherland became the first person to leave the competition.

Earlier today, The Sun on Sunday revealed Simon is in constant pain after his accident and has been warned by doctors that he could collapse again.

He underwent a series of tests in hospital but docs are still unsure what caused him to faint on Friday morning.

They advised him to rest until next week — warning the lights and heat in the ITV studio may trigger a relapse.

A source close to him said: “Simon is suffering bad pains in his neck, and is still very shaken.

“He thought he may have broken his back, and he’s told friends it was the most scared he’s ever been in his life.”

However he was given morphine and has improved since coming home."

The Sun Online has contacted a representative for comment regarding Simon's attendance tonight.
