Simon Cowell has lost a stone in weight on a diet of smoothies and homecoocked meals from fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy, it has been reported. According to tabloids, the music mogul went on the crash diet after thinking he looked too fat on The X Factor USA earlier this year!
Simon decided to "take action" after watching back clips from the first audition in America, although sitting next to Cheryl Cole it's not hard to see why you might feel the need to get into shape!
A source told The Sun today: "Simon generally tries to take care of himself but after a blow-out over Christmas, he had put on weight.
"Mezhgan has even been cooking some low-calorie meals for them in the evening, so the weight has just dropped off.
"He doesn't have a sweet tooth but he loves stodgy, carb-filled food and now he's in France, he's really having to watch himself around French bread and cheese."
