SICK POP IDOL NIGEL IS HOME TO BE IDLE.

Byline: ALEXANDER HITCHEN

POP Idol creator Nigel Lythgoe is out of hospital and resting up - just 11 days after a lifesaving double heart bypass.

The dad of three, who was dubbed Nasty Nigel for his acid tongue on the hit TV show, is recuperating with wife Bonnie and family in Los Angeles.

Surgeons who released him from Cedars Sinai Hospital have told him to take it easy.

A pal said: "He has been ordered to rest by the doctors for at least six weeks and more if possible. But he's itching to be back at work."

Nigel is determined to get fit for the final of the US version of his hit show in April. The pal added: "He is determined to be there when the winner is announced."

Chain-smoker Nigel, 53, was rushed into hospital after suffering chest pains and at one stage was critical.
