Speaking to the Mirror, Simon said: "I love watching 'the Botox years'. All of us are like, 'Christ, we had a lot that year. Not so much that year… maybe a bit too much that year.'

"You know, the old clips of us are hysterical, Amanda's always like, 'What was I thinking?', I said, 'Well, I don’t look a lot better.'

"I look all right now, but certain years it was like, 'Wow', I don’t know what was going on."

Simon has been open about having the procedure done while Amanda said in 2014 that she had stopped using Botox.

Simon has recently had an image overhaul after embarking on a healthier lifestyle and diet.

Last month, the dad-of-one revealed people claimed that he has had a gastric band fitted to help him lose weight but he insisted he hasn't.

I look all right now, but certain years it was like, 'Wow', I don’t know what was going on.

He told Best magazine: "People have said: 'Oh, he's had a gastric band fitted'- but I haven't. If I had, I would admit to it. This diet is all about what you put into your body."

Simon went on to reveal that the secret behind his weight loss is cutting out sugar.

He added: "I met this doctor in LA and he told me my diet was appalling and I had to cut out fatty foods and certain drinks. I could see the difference. Cutting out sugar made a massive difference.

"The first few weeks were difficult, but then I actually stopped craving sugar. I had also found a brilliant gluten-free beer, which helps."

Simon previously revealed his good friend and ex-girlfriend Sinitta encouraged him to lose weight.

He told the Daily Star: "I've never felt better. It was Sinitta who pointed at my stomach last year in Malibu and I went: 'I get it.'"

The star revealed his doctor told him to cut back on the six glasses of mango juice he was drinking every day.

Simon added: "Now I've changed my diet, gone vegan, cut out red meat. I've lost two stone and four inches off my waist."
