I was so worried yesterday when Mrs Cowell expressed concern about her little wittle boy Simon, fretting that no one was cutting the crusts off his sandwiches as he flitted between four different jobs and that he was at risk of exhaustion. However, now the man himself has joked about the scare, claiming he's "absolutely fine".
And the world breathes a collective sigh of relief...
Appearing on Fox & Friends, Si announced:
"The headline was a little bit overdramatic. I think she was concerned. You know what mums are like, 'My boy is working too hard…' I think she mentioned it to someone and then it got picked up to be a bigger story.
"I genuinely am absolutely fine and I have got at least weeks left!"
Big fat PHEW. If anything happened to Simon, we'd probably never find out whether Cheryl Cole really is on the panel in the US - and whether Louis is getting the chop.
As long as Simon promises to check in with his mum once a day and takes his multiple vitamins, I think none of us have any need to worry.
