‘I panicked it could be fatal’: Amanda Holden feared her friend Simon Cowell could die following his horrific motorbike accident and was unable to sleep after ‘gut-wrenching’ text
Amanda Holden has detailed her utter dread after learning her friend Simon Cowell had broken his bake following a horrific motorbike accident.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge, 49, feared the music mogul would die after hearing the ‘gut-wrenching’ news and was unable to sleep after receiving the call.
Oh no! Amanda Holden revealed on Saturday that she was so concerned about her pal Simon Cowell during his motorbike accident in August that she thought he was going to die
She said to The Sun: ‘I honestly panicked it could be fatal. I felt physically sick as I didn’t know how bad it was.
‘I wanted him to be alive, but I also wanted him to be able to walk as he’s such a good friend.’
As Simon doesn’t have a phone, Amanda got in touch with his partner, Lauren Silverman, who described what had transpired.
