SIMON Cowell is set to return to filming America’s Got Talent by the end of the month.
The star is battling back to fitness after breaking his back eight months ago.
He is clocking up around 40 miles a week on the treadmill as he prepares for a return to screens.
A TV source said: “Simon can’t wait to get back to doing what he loves.
He’s been focused on his return for months.”
Last month, Simon, 61, told Terri Seymour about the electric bike accident at his Malibu home last year.
He said: “It could have been a lot worse. When I saw the X-ray, I really nearly could have smashed my spine to pieces, so I literally wouldn’t have been able to walk.
“I knew I’d broken my back the minute I landed, it was really, really kind of sudden and it hurt.”
The star added of his partner Lauren Silverman and son Eric: “She was amazing.
