Simon Cowell will not quit X Factor UK

Simon Cowell is set to stay on this years X Factor.

The 51-year-old music mogul will be launching the US version of the X Factor later in the year. It has been confirmed while he will definitely take part in the UK series, despite several negative reports. However, he is worried about jetting across the Atlantic each week.

He told US TV show ‘Extra’: “We’re in the process of building a rocket and it is literally going to fly us from Los Angeles to London in an hour. It hasn’t been tested yet but that’s the idea.”

It is unsure whether or not he will take part in the whole of the series, or just the finals. His main priority will be the launch of the US X Factor.
