He admitted to undergoing a facelift last year that ‘hurt like hell.’
And Simon Cowell has now said that he and his Britain’s Got Talent co-judge Amanda Holden may have gone too far during the so-called ‘Botox Years.’
The legendary judge, 59, also told The Mirror that he’s been left in hysterics by old clips of him and Amanda, 49, sporting their significantly smoother complexions.
We’re done! Simon Cowell has said that he and his Britain’s Got Talent co-judge Amanda Holden may have gone too far during the so-called ‘Botox Years.
Speaking ahead of the latest semi-final for BGT: The Champions, Simon said: ‘I love watching ”the Botox years.” All of us are like, ”Christ, we had a lot that year. Not so much that year… maybe a bit too much that year”.’
‘You know, the old clips of us are hysterical, Amanda’s always like, ”What was I thinking?”, I said, ”Well, I don’t look a lot better.” I look all right now, but certain years it was like, ”Wow’, I don’t know what was going on”.’
Simon has been open about using Botox in the past, and even reportedly gifted his co-stars £350 vouchers for the treatment.
His former co-judge Sharon Osbourne has been equally candid about her surgical procedures, and recently unveiled the results of her fourth facelift.
In 2014 Amanda also confirmed that she had given up Botox following the difficult birth of her daughter Hollie in 2012.

Pictures taken throughout the years suggest Simon started having Botox injections from around 2009 onwards.
Last year, Simon admitted to having the facelift – but didn’t say when, and said the procedure ‘hurt like hell.’
He told The Sun that he visited cosmetic surgeon Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh, known as the ‘Picasso of dermatology’, for a Silhouette Soft Lift.
He underwent a non-surgical ‘sewing bioplastic-infused thread’ facelift that set him back £2000.

Simon explained: ‘For me now, it’s all about having clean skin. If you have clean skin, you look better. But you have to be very careful with some of this stuff.’
‘There’s lots of things you can do now. You don’t just have to stuff your face with filler and Botox. It hurts like hell but it gets rid of sun damage and unplugs all the cr*p.’
Simon once claimed that using Botox ‘added 10 years’ to his TV career, but that he regrets going overboard with the procedure.
He said: ‘Hopefully I look better now – I probably did have a little too much Botox a couple of years ago, because everyone on TV has it.
‘Now I have facials, but nothing too extravagant at the moment. I have a girl who comes here and does a great face massage – it’s very relaxing. I also had a sheep placenta facial once, which was quite out there.’
Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions continues on Saturday at 8:15pm on ITV.
