Simon Cowell has abruptly cancelled his 60th birthday celebrations just days before he was set to host an exclusive party at a West London restaurant.

The music mogul, who turned 60 on the 7 October, had celebrity guests flying from all over the world to celebrate his milestone at Chelsea restaurant, La Famiglia, on Wednesday night. 

Simon and his partner, Lauren Silverman, 42, sent out cancellations just days before the birthday extravaganza, citing ‘scheduling conflicts’ as the reason, leaving his showbiz friends’ plans thrown into turmoil.

A spokesperson for Simon told MailOnline: ‘The decision was made to postpone the dinner yesterday morning.

‘Simon’s priority is his incredibly busy work schedule over the next month and this, of course, includes the current series of The X Factor as well as other TV and music projects.’

Simon, who celebrated his actual birthday with a small dinner in LA earlier this month, is said to be rearranging his party for December.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Simon’s focus is solely on work for now. It’s no secret Simon is a workaholic and he always strives to improve everything he’s involved in.

‘He also doesn’t want people hungover on Thursday and would rather the focus is purely on work – and of course the upcoming shows – rather than celebrating his 60th.

‘His actual birthday was earlier this month anyway – and he had a small dinner in LA. So he’s just decided this bigger dinner can wait until December when work starts to calm down.’

While a second source told MailOnline: ‘Simon had planned a suitably extravagant event for his 60th and had guests flying in from all over the world to celebrate.

‘Cancelling just days before has really thrown people’s plans up into the air.’

The music mogul partied hard during the long dinner, emerging with a huge smile on his face before he accepted a bottle of wine from photographers for the ride home. 

At the event, Simon was also joined by partner Lauren’s son Adam, his Britain’s Got Talent co-star Alesha Dixon, his ex and close friend Terri Seymour, and America’s Got Talent co-star Howie Mandel.

Simon’s cancellation comes after he made an appearance with partner Lauren at Monday’s Pride of Britain Awards. 

The X Factor judge continued to display his considerably slimmer frame after losing 20lbs thanks to a strict vegan lifestyle.

Simon’s notably slender physique suggested he has since shed even more weight as he posed for photos at the annual event.

Later in the night, he was joined by partner Lauren and the couple looked loved-up as they made a cosy exit from the event.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge recently admitted during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he drastically changed his diet so he could keep up with son Eric.

He said: ‘I went to see this doctor in London. We did some tests. And then a month later he said, “You have the worst diet I’ve ever met from any patient.”

‘So I went, “Okay, out of the smoking, the drinking, and diet, what do I have to drop?” And he said, “The diet.” So I said, “I’m in!”

‘It was easier than I thought, and part of the reason I did it was because of Eric. I realised if I didn’t sort myself out physically, I wouldn’t be able to catch up with him.

‘Because the minute he gets up to the minute he goes to sleep … their energy, you forget, at five-years-old, is phenomenal.’

Simon previously said he’d named his diet the Eric Cowell diet after his son, because the youngster loves to munch on raw vegetables.

He said: ‘It’s like the Eric diet because he actually, apart from ice cream, he actually likes water. I mean, who likes water? And his raw vegetables. So I’m on like, the Eric Cowell diet.’
