In an interview with Dan Wooton on Lorraine, Simon revealed that he found it “a bit embarrassing” and is now focused on living a more balanced lifestyle. 

He said: “I’m alright. In a weird way it was a wake up call because it wasn't the end of the world. It was a bit embarrassing...

“I will never hear a bad word about the NHS. It’s like having an MOT, they do every possible test. I was probably overtired, to be honest.

“I feel much better this year, I'm not having so many meetings or late night calls, it's a bit more of a balance.”

He also went on to talking about his son, Eric taking over from him one day, adding: “I look at things through Eric's eyes, I want to spend more time with him, luckily he loves the shows [BGT] because I'm sort of training him up...I'd love him to take over." 

He went on to explain, he’s already a natural adding: “He's really confident! When he comes down he loves being in the gallery.”

Aww, we can just see him on the judging panel now!
