According to The Sun, X FACTOR star SIMON Cowell has been rushed to hospital after an accident at his London home.
Apparently he has been stretchered out of his London home in a neck brace after an ambulance was called at 8am this morning.
At present he is still in hospital undergoing tests.
It is believed that the 58 year old had fainted and fallen down the stairs after grabbing a cup of hot milk.
A source close to Cowell said: “It’s been a scary morning. It was very early and Simon was going down his stairs to get some hot milk because he couldn’t sleep.
“He fainted and is thought to have fallen down the stairs.
“An ambulance was called and he was stretchered out of the house in a neck brace surrounded by worried aides.”
It is thought that Simon is stable.
At present it is not known where his girlfriend Lauren Silverman and son Eric are and if they were at home with him at the time of the incident.
The fall came just a day before the first live X-Factor show of the year tomorrow – but it appears ITV were not told about the fall until this afternoon.
Representatives for Simon have been contacted for comment but at present have not said anything.
London Ambulance Service told MailOnline they couldn’t comment on cases ‘where patients could be identified’.
UPDATE: Simon’s girlfriend and mother of his baby, Lauren Silverman was in New York visiting her son and is currently on a plane flying back to London to be with Simon.
