X Factor's Simon Cowell 'reveals the Botox secrets of his fellow judges'

X Factor judges 2017

X Factor's Simon Cowell has answered the one question everyone is wanting to know.

Just how do the show's judges look even younger now, 12 years since the show first started?

Chatting to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Simon quipped: “It begins with B and ends in otox. Louis started the trend."

"How many years have I known Louis , when was Westlife 96-97? That’s 20 years and he hasn’t changed," he told the tabloid from judges' houses in LA.

Simon went on: "He’s got more hair now and the bags have suddenly disappeared. It’s funny that.

“Oh Sharon’s open, she doesn’t care, and that’s what I love about her. How do I keep looking young? No stress.”

Meanwhile, Simon revealed he already plans on inviting back this year's judges - which also include Nicole Scherzinger - to return next series.

He explained: “I really, really do think I can keep the same panel.

"What I learnt through social media or just friends, everyone was telling me what they wanted.

"They wanted the small rooms, they missed Louis, they missed Sharon, and they missed Nicole and Dermot of course, so when you can actually give them what they want and all get back together in the room again it was like five years disappeared.”

Of course next year is a long way off yet.

For now, The X Factor is back Saturday night from 8PM and Sunday at 7:30PM on ITV.
