‘What’s he done to himself?’: Simon Cowell’s ‘unrecognisable’ appearance leaves Royal Variety performance viewers in shock… as star breaks BGT golden buzzer in awkward blunder

Simon Cowell‘s ‘unrecognisable’ appearance left fans in shock after he took to the stage at the Royal Variety Performance, which was filmed December 2 and aired on ITV on Tuesday night. 

The music mogul, 63, left TV viewers distracted by his incredibly smooth visage, that may be the result of cosmetic surgery, with one asking: ‘What’s he done to himself?’.

Simon was introducing BGT winner Axel Blake, however things didn’t go to plan when the X Factor judge accidentally broke the golden buzzer off it’s stand in an awkward blunder.

The record producer had previously sparked concern by his appearance and taking to Twitter one viewer wrote: ‘Just saw Simon Cowell on the Royal Variety show, what has he done to himself? He looks really gruesome’.

While another added: ‘WTF have you done to your face lad?’ and a third added: ‘Simon Cowell needs to stop having facelifts!’.

Agreeing a fourth commented: ‘Flicked over during halftime of the football and was that Simon Cowell of George Michael ordered from Wish on stage’.

Another said: ‘Simon Cowell’s had a “little work” done’ and on more joked: ‘What on earth happened to Simon Cowell?’.  

Simon’s awkward on-stage blunder occurred when he hit the buzzer ahead of comedian’s Axel’s performance.

The button broke off from the stand into his hands, leaving the star holding it close to his chest.

Simon shrugged at host Lee Mack who laughed awkwardly before carrying on with the show.  

He previously sparked concern from fans in a promo video shared to social media on earlier this month.

During the video, Simon encouraged people to get in touch in order to audition for Britain’s Got Talent, just days after judge David Walliams quit the show

He said in the short VT: ‘I always say on this show, two or three minutes can change your life. And it has. And maybe this time it’s gonna be you. 

‘So please audition now for next year’s season and I look forward to meeting you.’
