Simon Cowell’s brief appearance on last night’s UK X Factor may have failed to boost ratings but it’s been revealed that the show’s bosses want him back permanently.
Show supremo Simon Cowell was seen making calls to judges Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh from Miami where he is filming the US version of the show.
Although average figures for last night’s bootcamp episode were down on the same stage last year, ITV pointed out that they are still the most-watched channel on Sunday night.
A source told The Sun that whilst Simon felt he’d ‘outgrown’ the UK, ‘with such disappointing figures in America bosses feel he may come back to Britain where he is loved and missed’.
So it seems SiCo could be coming back to British shores soon.
