He told his 1.3 million followers: “Eric reading his new favourite book ‘Come Find Me’ and it’s illustrated by my friend @terrycrews!”

Prior to the new picture of Eric, his son with partner Lauren Silverman, Cowell’s last shared a post on Instagram on June 20 2017, in support of his Grenfell fire celebrity charity single Bridge Over Troubled Water.

Cowell has also remained quiet on Twitter since June 2017, when he shared a number of posts about the Grenfell effort, which included vocals from the likes of Robbie Williams, Roger Daltrey, Rita Ora, Stormzy and Leona Lewis.
