'I'm Not Invincible' - Simon Cowell

He suffered a terrifying fall down the stairs on Friday, which forced him to pull out of the first X Factor live shows.

And Simon Cowell has now revealed his poor health was the reason behind the tumble - which had come as a 'huge shock'.

Speaking to The Sun, the 58-year-old explained he had fainted due to 'low blood pressure', and vowed to start 'taking good care of himself' from now on, for the sake of his son Eric, three.
