FEARS FOR ‘WASTED’ SI­MON

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Top Goss! -

New pho­tos h of f Bri­tain’s ’ Got Tal­ent l judge d Si­mon Cow­ell stum­bling out of a Lon­don restau­rant at 1.30am last week­end have prompted fears his drink­ing habit is spi­ralling out of con­trol.

“Si­mon was leg­less, stum­bling all over the place and hang­ing off of his din­ing com­pan­ions,” says an eye­wit­ness, who saw the 58-year-old leav­ing May­fair with his fel­low judges Amanda Holden and Ale­sha Dixon.

“It was like he’d for­got­ten how to walk down steps. But he still man­aged to light up a cig­a­rette!

“There was no mis­tak­ing the drunken, glazed look on his face.”

The pho­tos come a year af­ter Si­mon was filmed stum­bling down steps dur­ing record­ing of Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent, where he fell into an au­di­ence mem­ber’s lap. At the time, he was an hour and a half late and was widely re­ported to have been drunk.

“When your drink­ing starts af­fect­ing your work like that, you know there’s a prob­lem,” re­veals a close friend. “Si­mon’s not a young man any­more. It’s time he started tak­ing bet­ter care of him­self.”

The in­fa­mous TV judge looks worse for wear.
