Simon admitted he found it easier to stick to a healthy routine during the shutdown, except when his son wants to order pizza.
He said, “I’m cooking a little bit. I am sporting. Funnily enough, even more during this time, stick to the diet.
“The only difficult thing is when Eric orders a pizza … That’s the main thing I miss.”
Simon gave advice on how to cope while isolating himself, insisting it’s all about sticking to a routine.

He said, “The important thing is to keep your mind busy. You have to stick to a routine. Fortunately you keep in touch with the world with things like Zoom, you stay motivated, you come up with ideas … Normally I never get this time. ‘
The music tycoon enjoyed quality time with Lauren and Eric and said his son was doing well during the corona virus lock.
He said, “I was concerned with how [Eric] would cope with all this. He’s absolutely wonderful … He can still do school work, and now we camp in the yard on weekends. ‘

Simon also discussed the new season of America’s Got Talent returning to NBC on May 26.
He said, “I’ve seen the first episodes now, and even for us as a family it’s total escapism. The fact that everyone was able to put this together remotely … I think they did an excellent job, and the show that I am very proud of. ‘
He praised new judge Sofia Vergara, “She was great … After ten minutes, literally, on the first day, she turned to me and said,” Simon, this is the best job I’ve ever had. “
He said, “I’m cooking a little bit. I am sporting. Funny enough, even more during this time, stick to the diet ‘
“She was very good with the participants, very focused. You feel like she’s been on the show for a long time. ‘
Simon previously spoke about changing his diet on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
He said, “I went to this doctor in London. We did some tests. And a month later, he said, “You have the worst diet I’ve ever had from a patient.”
Simon added, “It’s like the Eric diet because he actually likes water, except for ice cream. I mean, who likes water? And are raw vegetables. So I follow Eric Cowell’s diet. ‘
