Simon Cowell To Return To The X Factor UK

After Quitting The Show In 2010

Simon Cowell is set to make a comeback to the UK version of The X Factor.

Cowell quit the show in 2010 to focus on launching the US version of the talent search but now the media mogul is set to make a comeback and join Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh in "some guise".

Richard Holloway, the show's executive producer, revealed at the Edinburgh Television Festival that 'Mr Nasty' will return in "some guise, somewhere" ahead of the finale at Christmas, adding: "That’s all I’m prepared to say – it’s not a hologram."

The Mirror reports that the media mogul will either appear on the show via video link from L.A. or appear on the show in person.

Despite Simon making a return to the UK show, Holloway revealed that Simon isn't a fan of going back and forth between the UK and the US.

He added: "He moves over there lock, stock and barrel, he stays there. He doesn’t like to-ing and fro-ing across two continents."
