Simon Cowell showed off his svelte frame as he pumped iron aboard a boat in Barbados on Wednesday, accompanied by his partner Lauren Silverman.

The X Factor mogul, 61, who has made an impressive recovery after breaking his back last year, worked on his health and fitness as he lifted weights while soaking up the sun.

Simon showed off his honed midriff after losing more than four stone on a vegan diet, as he worked on his biceps during his annual Caribbean break, while clad in a pair of blue and white patterned trunks.

Keeping himself occupied during the day, the BGT judge was also seen taking a quick phone call, chatting with friends and his son Eric, six, jetskiing and spending quality time with Lauren, 43.

Lauren showed off her incredible figure in a gorgeous navy and white polka dot bikini which revealed her ample cleavage and taut midriff.

The beauty also showcased her endless legs as she happily spent the day with loved ones.

Lauren wore her brunette tresses in an elegant updo with a hairband and accessorised with chic shades and a white cover-up.  

Simon is said to have made a full recovery from the broken back he sustained from a fall from his e-bike back in August,  and had planned to return to Britain’s Got Talent this year – however, the show has been scrapped amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

In a statement, ITV said they’re hopeful the show will return later this year, but have delayed plans to start auditions later this month due to government restrictions.

‘With the announcement of the latest Government health guidelines and with our priority of safeguarding the well-being of everyone involved in our programmes we, together with the production teams at Thames and Syco, have taken the decision to move the record and broadcast of the forthcoming series.

‘We will confirm revised dates in due course.’   

It had been reported that bosses decided to delay auditions as they would be unable to film auditions with a live audience during current restrictions.

 Sources also claimed that a vast production, with acts travelling from across the world to take part, wasn’t viable even though other TV productions have continued.  

Musician Sinitta, 52, who once dated Simon, previously disclosed that he is now walking a gruelling five miles a day amid his continued recovery. 

The singer told The Sun: ‘Simon has worked hard at his recovery and told me he’s walking 10,000 steps a day that’s around five miles – way more than he was before the accident. He’s got one of those watches that measures every step.’

 Meanwhile, sources recently claimed the TV star was considering legal action against the manufacturers of his electric bike following his injury. 

Simon and his team are said to be ‘weighing up’ their options and have been ‘pressing’ the manufacturers, Swindon Powertrain. 

One lawyer claimed that a successful lawsuit could see Simon get up to £10million for medical bills and loss of earnings, the publication reported.

But a whistleblower from the manufacturers reportedly claimed the £20,000 electric bike an ‘accident waiting to happen’ due to Simon’s lack of training.

 They told the publication: ‘It should never have been sold to Simon without him being taught how to use it.’ 

The former employee claimed the Swind EB-01 bike, which can reach up to 60mph and is banned on public roads in the UK, should not be used without specialist training.

The source continued: ‘I said to my boss, “Are you showing Simon how to use this?” He said he was just dropping it off and I said, “Are you serious?”‘     

A spokesperson for Simon told MailOnline: ‘Simon is understandably extremely concerned for other peoples’ safety in relation to this bike.

 ‘We have been pressing the manufacturers about this and will continue to press them, including in relation to the claims of the former member of staff.’ 

A spokesperson for Manufacturers Swindon Powertrain told MailOnline: ‘With any device, it is important to read the user manual before attempting to operate, acknowledged by Mr Cowell himself.   

‘The EB-01 user manual includes a detailed process of how to familiarise oneself with the performance features and procedures to follow.’

They added that they are ‘in contact with Mr Cowell’s aides to progress this’, noting, ‘the company has acted in good faith at all times.’
