And on Monday, the music mogul was pictured looking his slimmest yet, in a photo posted on his Britain's Got Talent co-star David Walliams' Instagram account. In the image Simon and David were pictured with their arms around each other while backstage at Britian's Got Talent: The Champions. Simon was wearing a slim fitting T-shirt and jeans, and many of his fans were quick to comment on his weight loss. "Simon is so diddy," one wrote, while another added: "Looking trim you guys, is it the vegan diet?"
