SIMON Cowell showed off his painful-looking sunburn as he enjoyed a flash night out with girlfriend Lauren Silverman in London.
The music mogul, 61, was pictured in his signature black suit and open-buttoned white shirt as he arrived to Mayfair haunt Harry’s Bar last night.

Despite his dapper attire, it appeared as though the Britain’s Got Talent judge enjoyed a bit too much of the UK’s recent hot weather as his face and chest looked sunburnt.
However, Simon looked in jovial spirits and pictured with a smile across his face as he walked hand-in-hand with Lauren.
The 43-year-old looked stunning in a fitted mixed print midi dress, black heels and a cropped cardigan.
The couple’s night out comes after Simon admitted that it was “lucky” that he broke his back because it meant he “didn’t get Covid”.

The music mogul said his injury made it impossible for him to travel, but admits it was a “good thing” because it reduced his chances of catching coronavirus.
Simon was almost left paralysed when he fell from his electric bike at his Malibu home last year.
The X Factor judge also explained that the damage could have been far more life-threatening.
Speaking to promote America’s Got Talent, he said: “I was a millimetre away from just cutting my back in half. So I consider myself lucky.

“Weirdly, it was a good thing that it happened. I didn’t get Covid because I wasn’t able to travel and I probably would’ve done my fair share last year.”
Simon broke three vertebrae, missing his spinal cord by a centimetre, in the horrendous fall.
The star fell backwards and smashed down on to a concrete floor in front of his horrified son Eric, six, and partner Lauren Silverman’s teenage son Adam from a previous relationship.

The star was rushed to Providence Saint John’s hospital in Santa Monica, a short drive from his £18million beachside property in Malibu, where he underwent his surgery.
He later confessed to fans that he had not read the instruction manual before trying out his new toy.
Breaking his silence, Simon tweeted at the time: “Some good advice…If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time.
“I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages..”
He added: “And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors. Some of the nicest people I have ever met. Stay safe everyone.”
Thankfully, it hasn’t appeared to have left any lasting damage either physically or mentally, with Simon unafraid to get back on the saddle now that he has fully recovered from his injuries.
