X Factor 2013 judges: Simon Cowell would love to be back!

Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell has said he'd love to come back to The X Factor UK!

The series is definitely in need of the music mogul's Midas touch, having had a disappointing few years since his exit in 2011.

Simon, Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue all left the show in the same year to pursue a variety of projects, with Simon launching the show in the USA.

Unfortunately the US series means Simon won't be back this year, but he teased he'd definitely would love to back in 2014.

Assuming The X Factor is still going then, of course.

He said: "I would love to come back. I need to try and make it work."

And Simon suggested that going back to basics, with just himself, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne back on the panel, could be a plan.

Simon blabbed: "I will have to wait and see, but it would certainly be very entertaining to be back with Louis and Sharon!"

Simon previously insisted he would never rule out a return to the show.

Speaking to us at the Britain’s Got Talent 2013 auditions in London last month, Simon said his reasons for not returning to the UK series were purely down to clashing schedules.

He explained: “It’s all to do with timing, it would be impossible to do the English show and American show together."
