Simon Cowell has indicated that he does plan to return to the UK version of ‘X-Factor’, following the news ITV has signed up to another three seasons of the ailing but still pretty darn popular talent show.

Asked if he will ever return to judge on the British version of the programme by Metro, the Syco chief said: “I will at some point. I still miss that, I mean that show is my baby and that last year we did, which was the One Direction year, was the most fun I’ve had – it was fantastic. When I look back at the clips now and remind myself about it, it was a really cool year that”.

With most of the current ‘X-UK’ judges due to depart at the end of this series, Cowell indicated that he would quite like to return to a judging role alongside Rita Ora and former ‘X’ colleague Cheryl Cole.

On his famous falling out with the one time Girl Aloud after her axing from ‘X-USA’, Cowell added: “Cheryl and I patched up our differences a long time ago. I saw her recently, we speak a lot on the phone and text each other, and I think both of us would like the idea of working together again. She was a great judge. I mean, apart from being cute she’s a great judge and she knows what she’s talking about and, oh my god, she wears her heart on her sleeve!”
