TV personality Simon Cowell, 60, has returned as judge on TV talent competition Britain’s Got Talent on ITV. Simon, who founded the popular series, has become known for his blunt and controversial comments on the show and will judge new acts alongside Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams this series. As Simon gets ready for the second episode of BGT, Express.co.uk took a look at the TV personality’s girlfriend.
Who is Simon’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman?
Lauren is a 42-year-old New York socialite from the US state of Florida.
The relationship with Simon had a chaotic start, and in 2013, her affair with the TV personality broke.
At the time, Lauren was married to Andrew Silverman, one of Simon’s good friends.

Simon and Lauren had a child as a result of the affair and remained together.
The couple first met in Barbados in 2006 and were introduced by Lauren’s then-husband.
In the time after their first meeting, Simon kept going on holidays with the couple.
When the news of Lauren’s pregnancy was revealed, Andrew, who is a real estate mogul, filed for divorce.
The divorce papers were filed in July 2013, and became public two weeks later.
The papers were submitted on the ground of adultery and mentioned Simon as a co-respondent.
Simon said at the time: “There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there’s a lot of people’s feelings involved here.”
Simon and Lauren have been together every since.

Do Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman have children?
Simon and Lauren welcome a baby son on Valentine’s Day, February 14 in 2014.
The couple named their son Eric and Simon has previously told how his son made life much more fulfilling.
He told the Daily Star: “Eric is absolutely incredible and so funny. It [being a father] is the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Simon has previously opened up about not ruling out having more kids.
He said: “Would I like more babies? I don’t make that decision. As you know, these things happen.”
As well as Eric, Lauren is mum to an older son – Adam – who she shares with her ex-husband.
In February, the Britain’s Got Talent judge also revealed he was “terrified” he and Eric would contract coronavirus.
He said: ”I am terrified about it. I have worn masks for ages, when I cycle around town, I wear a mask.
“But I am taking Eric to Disneyland Paris next weekend and I’m almost certain when we’re on the train we will 100 percent be wearing masks.”
