Simon recently opened up about his experience in lockdown, and revealed that he wasn't letting it give him an excuse to pile on the pounds, having shed an impressive four stone in the past 12 months. Speaking to Terri Seymour on Extra, he said: "I think I have dropped, since I started this diet a year ago, 60 pounds. I’m doing a bit of cooking. I’m exercising. Funny enough, more during this time as well, sticking to the diet. The only difficult thing is when Eric orders a pizza… That’s the number one thing I miss."

Sharing his advice on coping during the lockdown, Simon revealed it's all about sticking to a routine. He said: "Most importantly, occupy your mind. You have to stick to a routine. Fortunately, with things like with Zoom, you stay in touch with the world, keep motivated, come up with ideas… I never get this time, normally."
Simon has been relishing spending more time with his son Eric, adding: "I was concerned how [Eric] was going to cope with all of this. He has been absolutely amazing… He is still able to do schoolwork, and now we are camping on the weekends in the garden." Speaking about sleeping in tents outside, Simon added: "Lauren, the first time, 11 o’clock said, 'I can’t deal with this'… and I said 'No, we are staying outside.'"
