Er, except when a gas shortage caused his favourite shepherd’s pie restaurant to close and he was left fuming because there was nothing he could do to fix it.
THIS IS A SERIOUS ISSUE, GUYS. NO LAUGHING.
Alright, maybe a giggle or two. Because let’s be honest, this is HILARIOUS and makes us feel much better about the -20 degrees celcius temperatures we were left with for our festive period.
The 55-year-old’s exotic trip was reportedly left in turmoil after a shortage of natural gas on the island forced one of his favourite exclusive restaurants, The Lone Star, to shut.
This meant that Simon couldn’t munch down on his annual tradition of a shepherd’s pie. QUELLE HORREUR.
Excuse us whilst we get our teeny tiny violins out.
Due to the shortage of gas, the restaurant is currently only serving cold foods and salads, much to the dismay of the music mogul who apparently usually visits the beach-side eaterie three or four times each stay.
And orders the same thing every. Single. Time.
Why not branch out to a caesar salad, Simon?! You never know if you never try!
A source talking to The Sun about Simon’s dilemma, explaining: “Lone Star is one of Simon’s favourite restaurants on the island and he loves their home-made shepherd’s pie.
“He never orders anything different and he’s pretty annoyed that the gas problems have affected most of the places on the west coast.
“Everyone’s been trying to book tables and they’re slowly all coming back, but Lone Star is still serving only cold food for now.”
Sad times. Things are reportedly starting to get back to normal, with restaurants slowly bringing in mobile camping gas equipment to help bring their kitchens back to normal.
Well thank GOODNESS for that. Couldn’t have Simon going hungry could we?!
Simon’s trip has been plagued with bad news (you know, that awful sunshine business and the fact that he’s having a gloriously relaxed time. Ahem), after it was revealed that for the first time in a long time, he would NOT be hiring his superyacht.
Say it ain’t so!
Thanks to girlfriend Lauren Silverman’s tendency to come down with seasickness (we feel you, Loz) and baby Eric being around, the X Factor boss apparently decided to ditch the boat for this year.
Hopefully he’ll be able to recover from the trauma ASAP.
Perhaps you could use your fortune to solve this gassy problem, Simon?!
Or just indulge in a salad instead. New year, new you right?
