Simon Cowell walks away from U.K. ‘X Factor’ to prep U.S. version

HollywoodNews.com: Simon Cowell is leaving the British version of “X Factor” so he can focus on the launch of the U.S. redux of the music competition show.

Talking on ‘X Factor,’ Cowell exclaimed that he has a year’s commitment to the U.S. series, and that his work on the show will consume so much of his time, he won’t be able to concentrate on his British programs. Cowell will also not appear on “Britain’s Got Talent” and hinted that the show will get a brand new panel without him. Piers Morgan is a judge on that show and he’s set to take over Larry King’s talk show spot on CNN. Cowell is reported to have a $9.2 million deal with Britan’s ITV.

The Sun reveals:

Simon said he still had not decided if the UK’s X Factor could go ahead without him as a judge – but said it would have to switch dates.

He is due to start US X Factor in September next year – just as the UK show would be getting into full swing.

Simon said: “It will have to move. Do people want it back?

“I am going to sit it out for a few more weeks before I make a final decision. And it has to be fun. The minute it stops being fun, bye bye.”

An ITV source announced: “We expect he’ll be back on the ‘X Factor.’ It’s such a huge show and Simon is integral to it.

“We envision moving the show to October or November and screening the auditions while he does the live show in the States. Then he can return for the live shows in January.”
