Simon Cowell went jet skiing with his son Eric, 7, and girlfriend Lauren Silverman in Barbados on Monday during an an action-packed family getaway.

The music mogul, 61, looked in good spirits after he swapped the British heatwave in London for the Caribbean.

It comes less than a year after Simon was rushed to hospital to undergo six hours of surgery after breaking his back in an electric bike accident in August.

But the father-of-one proved once again that his injury was not going to get the better of him as he frolicked in the sea with his son on their green jet skis. 

Simon showed off his skills with the vehicle, standing up as he crashed through the crystal blue water. 

He made sure to protect himself and Eric during their fun ride out into the ocean as they both wore life jackets.

The lookalike father-son duo also both decided to wear aviator sunglasses, with little Eric opting for a reflective blue pair for the fun excursion.

They both also wore blue board shorts while Eric’s mother and Simon’s girlfriend Lauren, 43, wore a white bikini underneath her large life jacket. 

She is also mother to Adam, 15, whose father is her ex-husband, wealthy businessman Andrew Silverman. 

The family of three were spotted racing around together, making some waves in the water with their jet skis. 

Their latest Caribbean holiday comes after Simon vowed to do everything he can to ensure he makes a full recovery following breaking his back. 

Simon was left bedridden for months after a devastating electric bike accident at his Malibu home in August last year.

The record executive now walks for several hours a day and holds business meetings at 9AM so that he no longer lives like a ‘vampire’. 

Of his new fitness regime, a source told MailOnline: ‘Simon said how he hasn’t worn trainers as much as this in 20 years. 

‘He feels fitter than ever before and is keeping to a normal routine rather than being on the phone until into the early hours of the morning.’  

Simon told Extra in February of the horror bike incident: ‘I nearly smashed my spine to pieces!’

The X Factor boss also admitted he ‘couldn’t have got through’ it without his girlfriend Lauren and son Eric, who sweetly called him ‘iron man’ when he first saw his dad with metal rods and screws in his back following surgery.

Recovering: It comes less than a year after Simon was rushed to hospital to undergo six hours of surgery after breaking his back in an electric bike accident in August

Simon met Lauren when she was still married to millionaire property developer Andrew Silverman.  

Their affair became public – and Simon’s life changed – at the end of July 2013 when news broke of Lauren’s pregnancy.

In 2015, Simon told Mail on Sunday Event magazine: ‘I’m not proud of the circumstances, I can’t hold my head up about it.’ 

And of the pregnancy, he admitted: ‘This was not something I planned. But I remember going to the first scan with Lauren. 

‘I called him Tad because he looked like a tadpole. Something just kicked in. I felt unbelievably protective of both of them. I just absolutely wanted him. I just hadn’t known that before.’
