Simon Cowell is pictured with cigarette despite vowing to stop after his health scare

The star has been filming the thirteenth series of the show in North Hollywood with fellow judge Mel B, who was spotted rocking a red sequin dress emblazoned with the slogan Girl power.

X Factor mogul Simon, 58, was rushed to hospital last October after fainting and taking a tumble at his London home while fetching some milk.

He then promised to take better care of himself, and told Now magazine that he was cutting down to two cigarettes a day.

But in December the telly judge admitted he was struggling to quit smoking and boozing.

He said: "I’m not going to lie though – whenever I’m seen out it’s with a cigarette and a beer in my hand. So I think I’ve been rumbled as far as that goes."

Speaking to The Sun about the horrific incident, he said: “Sometimes we get a reminder that we’re not invincible and this was certainly mine. It was a huge shock.

"They think I fainted because I had low blood pressure and so I have got to really take good care of myself to sort that out.

“After all I am a dad and have more responsibility than ever.”

In 2016, it was revealed that Simon had given up his 80-a-day cigarette habit – by switching to vaping – for the sake of his son.

America's Got Talent, aired on the NBC television network, is now in its thirteenth season.

Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B return as judges, with Tyra Banks also returning as the show’s host.
