NEW DETAILS: Simon Cowell is explaining that scary fall down the stairs

NEW DETAILS: Simon Cowell is explaining that scary fall down the stairs that landed him in the hospital last Friday.

In a new interview with The Sun, the 58-year-old America’s Got Talent judge reveals he fainted and tumbled due to low blood sugar.

“I’d gone to get some hot milk because I felt ropey,” he recalls. “On the way back upstairs, I just remember feeling really dizzy. Next thing I know, someone was putting a neck brace on me and I had a terrible headache, which must have been from me hitting the stairs. I was worried at first that I’d done some real damage.”

“But I’m on the mend now,” he continues. “I know I was very lucky I didn’t hurt myself seriously. It could have been a lot worse. I must say, everyone at the hospital was incredible. I’m truly grateful.”
