Simon Cowell reveals he was left ‘petrified’ for son Eric and fiancée Lauren in candid remark

Simon Cowell opened up about feeling “petrified” about his fiancée, Lauren Silverman, and son Eric after watching his friends fall ill with Covid.

The X Factor creator made the revelation during a candid conversation on The Mirror’s podcast Men in Mind, where he opened up about his experience of depression, something, which was triggered by the global pandemic.

“In the very, very, very early stages, some friends of mine got really ill and I’m talking about really ill. So, I thought, ‘God, if I catch this, maybe the same thing’s going to happen to me, Eric and Lauren.’

“I didn’t know what was true or not, I just didn’t have a clue other than I was petrified about catching it. Just petrified.”

During the conversation, Simon opened up about suffering from depression, explaining: ” I’ve suffered from depression over the years…but that was just something I just thought, ‘Well, that’s my character trait. I get down,’ and it’s something you deal with. And then I suppose COVID was the real catalyst.”

But after therapy, the Britain’s Got Talent judge revealed he is feeling more incredible than ever. “I wish I had done this 10 or 20 years ago…it’s like a weight has lifted off my shoulders,” he said of going to therapy.
