Simon Cowell, 64, shocks fans with his ‘frozen’ appearance as Stephen Merchant jokes his face doesn’t move on Saturday Night Takeaway

Simon Cowell has left fans in shock with his ‘frozen’ appearance on the latest episode of Saturday Night Takeaway.

The media mogul, 64, made an appearance on the first episode of the new series of Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly‘s show.

However, viewers found it difficult to focus on what he was saying and were more concerned about his appearance.

Simon has previously denied having a face lift but admitted to regretting his extensive use of Botox. 

Taking to X, several viewers commented on his looks, with one writing: ‘Is that definitely Simon Cowell? He looks like a melting Ken Doll?’

A second user added: ‘Simon Cowell looks more and more like a cartoon every time I see him,’ while a third wrote: ‘Simon Cowell doesn’t look like Simon Cowell anymore.’

A fourth penned: ‘Not sure Simon Cowell has aged gracefully!’

Fellow guest Stephen Merchant also couldn’t resist commenting on Simon’s appearance during the show.

Simon was pranked by Ant and Dec as they had him pulled over by fake police while on his bike in Malibu.

Commenting on the clip, Stephen, 49, joked: ‘I didn’t like it… I loved it. that was my Simon impression it wasn’t very convincing because my face moved.’

The comedian’s quip also drew a swift response from viewers with one writing: ‘Stephen Merchant just propper mugged off Simon Cowell then.’

Another wrote: ‘Ahaha Stephen Merchant “it’s not quite convincing because my face moved” after his Simon Cowell impression.’

On the show, Ant and Dec headed to Los Angeles for an unmissable Undercover segment, during which they target an unsuspecting Simon outside his Californian bolt-hole.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge was originally singled out for their very first Undercover prank – a segment that involves duping celebrities into bizarre predicaments – while he was working on US reality show American Idol.

Ant said: ‘It was even sweeter getting him the second time round because we also got him during his downtime as he’s riding his bike around Malibu, it’s very, very funny.’

‘We are ending the Undercovers where we started… with Simon Cowell! Our first ever Undercover was on Simon in LA when he was a judge on American Idol.

‘So we’ve gone back and got Simon Cowell again. We went out to LA and gave him the day from hell whilst he was judging on America’s Got Talent.’

Last year, Simon proved that he doesn’t mind poking fun at his own expense after making a dig about his changing face on Britain’s Got Talent.

During one of the talent competition’s live shows he played up to the wagging tongues and passed a cheeky comment about his face.

The surprising swipe came after one hopeful, Tom Crosbie, impressed the judges by creating Bruno Tonioli‘s face from a Rubik’s Cubes.

While the finished result was being shown to the panel, Amanda Holden, 52, seized the opportunity to crack a joke about Bruno, 67, and pointed out: ‘Well, he’s got the orange [face] right!’

‘How the hell do you do that?’ a totally baffled Simon asked, while the artist responded: ‘Practice…turns out you have a really difficult face to make out of Rubik’s Cubes.’

It was at that point that Simon quipped: ‘I’ll change my face…again.’

In April Simon insisted he has never had a facelift after presenters Ant & Dec made a cheeky quip about his changing appearance.

At the time, Dec, 47, told the audience: ‘We have a new face joining the judging panel’ to which his comedy partner, also 47, replied: ‘What? Simon has a new face?’.

Speaking to The Mirror Simon laughed off the suggestion he had gone under the knife, despite his drastically altered features.

He told the publication: ‘I think it’s hysterical. I mean, it just makes me laugh. I haven’t had a facelift or anything.’

‘I’ve had a bit of Botox or whatever, but nothing drastic,’ he added.

‘So when I hear about this stuff, honestly it does make me laugh’.

The talent show boss recently revealed that he took his love of Botox too far , with his final treatment leaving him looking like ‘something out of a horror show’.

According to The Sun, Simon said he decided to stop when his strange appearance left son Eric, eight, in hysterics.

The former X Factor judge, who shares his son with partner Lauren Silverman, 44, revealed that as a result he no longer has any filler in his face.

He has also been showing off his much slimmer figure after dropping three stone and wearing a surgical back brace, as of late, to aid his recovery after nearly being paralysed in a bike accident in 2020.

The businessman broke his back in 2020 in a fall from an electric bike he was testing at his home in Malibu, California. He had six hours of surgery. There was another setback after he fell from his bike again a year later.

The former X Factor star has since shed three stone after overhauling his diet and lifestyle to help with his recovery.
