Things are slowly returning to normal for Simon Cowell.
Last weekend, the former American Idol judge broke his back after falling from a new motorcycle he was testing at home.
A spokesperson for the 60-year-old star said he had “broken his back in several places” and would undergo surgery.

“He’s already done some work this week, but he also knows he needs to give back time to heal properly from the surgery,” they continued.
