ITV has just agreed a new three year deal for the X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent with Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment and production company Fremantle Media.
There were rumours that Simon Cowell wouldn’t be doing the X Factor any more in the UK, but it just seems now that he might not be one of the judges.
“I am committed to making sure both shows get bigger and better every year,” said Cowell in a statement. “I have a lot to thank ITV for; they have been key in making The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent the UK’s biggest television shows.”
Peter Fincham, ITV director of television, added: “The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent are the shows that have helped define the last decade of television in the U.K. and have become more than just a talking point: they are a national obsession, and I’m delighted that our viewers can continue to enjoy them on ITV over the next three years.”
