David Walliams Reveals The Real Reason Simon Cowell Ghosted Him After Electric Bike Accident
Simon Cowell and David Walliams are the ‘BGT’ duo that everyone has been obsessed with since they began working together in 2012. But it may come as a shock that the dynamic duo have not spoken in six months after Simon’s electric bike accident that left him with a broken back.
David Walliams And Simon Cowell Have Not Spoken In 6 Months
David was promoting his upcoming Christmas special, Jack and the Beanstalk: After Ever After, when the conversation shifted to how Simon has been doing. “I haven’t heard from him for about six months. I do think if you’re out of sight you’re out of mind with him,” he said. “When we are together it’s fun.”
David and Simon have definitely had the ultimate bromance on ‘BGT’ and we miss seeing them together on their screens. “But I don’t think he’s sitting there thinking, ‘I wonder how David is, I must give him a call and let him know I’m OK and thank him for doing such a good job on Britain’s Got Talent when I wasn’t there'” he added.
Simon underwent a six-hour back surgery after falling off his electric bike in the courtyard of his Malibu home. He missed the live shows on ‘AGT’ and ‘BGT’ and left everyone wondering when he would make his return to television. His fellow judges all continued to give little updates here and there on his health but there were always conflicting reports about Simon’s recovery. He has since been spotted out shopping with his family and is ready to get back on television.
Why Has Simon Ghosted David?
David revealed why he thinks Simon really has not contacted him since the accident. “Simon doesn’t have a phone,” he said. “Well, either he doesn’t have a phone or he hasn’t given me his number.” Simon has spoken in the past about how he does not really like to use a cell phone so this can very well be true.
“He’s currently convalescing in Barbados. Not bad,” David said. “Convalesce anywhere, make it Barbados.” While David is the ultimate jokester, Simon does love a good vacation in Barbados. He was actually looking to buy a home there which we spoke about in the What’s Hot Video below. He has acquired quite the knack for real estate lately, selling houses left and right as he recovered from his surgery.
Simon Is Set To Make His Return On ‘BGT’
Simons’s return to television is highly anticipated. “He may make an appearance,” Amanda Holden recently said about the ‘BGT’ holiday special coming up. She also teased that Simon will be there in person for ‘BGT’ auditions in January.
“Yes. I’ve heard it from the horse’s mouth,” she said. “He phoned me in the last sort of three weeks, he’s well, he’s fighting fit, he can’t wait to get started. So when we start auditions in January he will be there.” The real question here is….why has Simon been in contact with Amanda via phone and not David?
