Simon Cowell was left unable to work after being brought down by a very sudden and painful illness.
The 64-year-old reality host and music icon was forced to pull out of Britain’s Got Talent auditions at the last minute after getting crippled by an undisclosed illness that came with a massive headache.
“Simon was due to film as normal but he started to feel unwell,” an insider told Daily Star.
“After some deliberation, he told everyone he was unable to take part in filming.
“To say he was frustrated was an understatement. Simon loves making Britain’s Got Talent, so he was annoyed that he had to miss filming.”
Fortunately, the judge was able to participate in the tryouts that followed in Manchester shortly after he retreated from the earlier auditions.
As of this writing, Simon’s condition remains unclear.
The health scare comes just days after an unidentified woman with mental health issues tried to enter the backstage to see the judges at the Britain’s Got Talent set.
“Police were called at 1.23 pm today to reports of a woman suffering a mental health crisis at Argyll Street, W1,” the Met Police confirmed.
“Officers and London Ambulance Service attended. The woman was assisted by officers who made arrangements for her to be met by a family member. There were no offenses.”
It is believed that the female attempted to sneak past security to reach the restricted area and see the judges.
“Police were dealing with an individual outside of the Palladium who was causing a bit of a stir, and the BGT team helped out. But BGT didn’t call the police and there was no threat to the judges as they didn’t get inside the Palladium,” a Fremantle source added.
