Simon Cowell rides the waves on a jet ski in Barbados

Simon Cowell rode the waves on a bright green Yamaha jet ski during a family boat trip in Barbados on Tuesday. 

The music mogul, 61, showed off the results off his four stone weight loss as he went shirtless in a blue life jacket. 

Simon was joined by his glamorous partner Lauren Silverman, 43, and their son Eric, seven, with the pair watching him cruise through the water from their boat.

He wore a black face mask, but took it off for his ride in the sea. Lauren, meanwhile, looked beach ready in a navy vest top and white ripped shorts. 

The socialite donned a cream fedora hat with brown ribbon trim and accessorised her summery outfit with tortoise shell shades, a Fendi tote bag and pearl earrings.

Simon’s mini-me son Eric kept cool in Hawaiian print shorts and stayed with Lauren on the boat’s deck which was shaded by a large parasol.

Lauren’s eldest son Adam, 15,  whom she shares with her ex husband Andrew Silverman, didn’t appear to be present on the boat trip. The family were joined by a host of friends and crew.

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 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.

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.’  

Say cheese! Simon caught the attention of some holiday-goers and stopped to take a photo with them
