X Factor 2013 judges: Simon Cowell to return 'via satellite'

Simon Cowell (Britain's Got Talent 2013)

Simon Cowell has revealed he could be returning to The X Factor UK 2013 via satellite.

The music mogul previously revealed he's set to return to the show this year after last year's flagging ratings.

Simon quit the British series in 2011 to focus on the launch of the US show but wants to be back for the tenth series in the summer.

Both the UK and American shows are set to go under a big revamp after falling ratings for their latest series last year.

Simon teased last week: “I’m definitely getting more involved and will have a role in the next series.”

He added: “I’m not going to lie – I do miss doing it, because it’s like my baby.”

Speaking to the Daily Star today, he went on to reveal: “I will be there a little bit – probably by satellite. I think during the middle stages.

“There are going to be some changes that will give the viewers what they want.

Simon previously said he would return to The X Factor UK full time were it not for the clashes with filming the Stateside show.

He explained: “It’s been difficult the last two years not being on the show as I always had a great time and the last time that I did do it, it was such a brilliant year. So at some point of course I’m going to come back and do the show.”
