The X Factor manager accepted he was “very blessed” never to seriously harmed himself.
Simon Cowell has said the tumble down steps which obligated him to miss this weekend’s X Factor was a “huge distress”, with it judge now vowing for taking better care and attention of himself.
The judge, who sat out Saturday and Sunday night’s first live programmes after fainting at his London home on Friday, said doctors consider low blood circulation pressure was the cause of the accident.
Within an interview with The Sun, Cowell said he’d be taking steps to tackle the condition, specifically for the sake of his kid, three-year-old Eric.
He told the paper: “Sometimes we get a reminder that we’re not invincible and this was certainly mine. It had been a huge shock.
“They think I fainted because I needed low blood pressure and so I have to really take good care of myself to sort out that out. In the end I am a father and have more responsibility than ever.”
On Sunday, X Factor web host Dermot O’Leary said that Cowell, who’s mentoring the teams this year, was still not sufficiently to become listed on the ITV show, with Britain’s Acquired Talent judge Alesha Dixon taking his place.
Cowell recalled he had gone to get some some hot dairy but thought “really dizzy” on his in the past upstairs.
He added: “Next thing I understand someone was placing a neck of the guitar brace on me and I possessed a terrible frustration, which must have been from me hitting the steps.”
He said he was initially worried he may did some “real damage”, but accepted he was “very blessed” it had not been more serious and said he was “on the mend”.
He was photographed flashing a thumbs-up when he delivered home from a healthcare facility hours later.
