Simon Cowell shocks fans with a new look
Simon Cowell appeared in a short online clip in which he showed off his new look. He flashed his pearly whites at the camera. Fans also noticed that his face looked swollen and shiny, especially when he spoke. Simon wore a gray blazer over a white button-up shirt.
His face appeared tight in the video. Simon announced the launch of the upcoming series of BGT on social media. However, the video disappeared from Twitter. He caught too much attention for his looks rather than the raw talent that will be on the show.

Earlier this year, the former American Idol judge revealed that he lost over 60 pounds after a new diet and fitness routine. He works with a team of personal chefs who make burgers, jam, tarts, and sausage rolls. Simon has also eliminated sugar from his diet. He embarked on a new lifestyle after suffering a fall in his London home in 2017.
Simon also said that he would swear off plastic surgery. His son told him that he looked like something from a horror movie and he agreed. However, fans fear that he’s back to it after his appearance in the BGT video.
“I always say on this show, two or three minutes can change your life,” Simon Cowell said in the now-deleted video. “And it has. And maybe this time it’s gonna be you. So please audition now for next year’s season and I look forward to meeting you.”
