Simon Cowell has been injured again – and this time it’s his wrist. The AGT judge was spotted wearing a wrist support brace as he headed to filming on Saturday. The dad-of-two opted for a grey two-piece lounge suit and a black and grey brace on his left wrist. He was also seen wearing a headset and giving the thumbs up as he spoke to his team over Zoom.
This isn’t the first time the 62-year-old has had an accident while riding an e-bike. He broke his back in 2020 when he fell off of one at his Malibu home and had to undergo six-hour spinal surgery and a metal rod implant. But despite this latest injury, he isn’t stopping his love for riding his bike. He just has to make sure he wears a helmet this time.
NBC’s America’s Got Talent is currently in the middle of its 17th season with Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Howie Mandel as his fellow judges. The new season kicked off last night with AGT: Extreme, which sees more risky acts take the stage. But it’s not just the extreme acts that are dangerous – the judging panel has also been taking some risks on their own!
But while many AGT fans were happy to see Howie’s return, they weren’t so excited to see his cast on his right hand. The 71-year-old comedian is also recovering from breaking his arm in a car crash. But his broken wrist isn’t stopping him from bringing the laughs to this season of the hit show.
