BGT’s Simon Cowell looks unrecognisable in pre-Botox snap


Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell looks extremely different in a 25-year-old throwback snap

The music mogul’s appearance has changed over the course of his career, with him previously admitting he didn’t recognise himself.

Simon, 62, has been no stranger to Botox over the years and he once admitted he “went too far” with it at times.

The photo was snapped back at the 1994 Brit Awards where Simon was 35-years-old at the time.

He recently claimed that getting Botox “is no more unusual than toothpaste”.

He told The Sun: “There was a stage where I might have gone a bit too far. I saw a picture of me from ‘before’ the other day and didn’t recognise it as me first of all.

“Eric (his son) was in hysterics. Enough was enough. There is no filler in my face at all now. Zero.”

In another interview for Glamour, Simon admitted: “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.”

This unearthed snap comes after X Factor legend Stevi Ritchie opened up his ITV experience and his thoughts toward his old TV mentor, Simon.

Stevi chatted exclusively to showbiz reporter Carly Hacon during a Daily Star Facebook tell-all about the show and everything he’s been up to since.

The singer starred in the programme in 2014 and came sixth in the competition.

Stevi said: “Simon’s look, yeah, he’s unrecognisable, isn’t he? I barely recognise him sometimes.

“He looks well don’t get me wrong, he’s very slim, he was very puffy-faced a few years ago but he’s kind of slimmed-down now.

“He’s gone through a lot of wars lately and now he looks great. I’d love to meet him again, Simon please get in touch.”

Discussing his surgeries over the years, he continued: “I think that him now, he looks beautiful, I’d say ‘leave it alone, Simon, you look great, you are a legend and the god of X-Factor and in my eyes, you gave me a big shot in life.'”
