Simon Cowell Ready To Leave X Factor And BGT?
The TV judge says he has run out of insults…
Simon Cowellhas given a big hint that he won’t return to the UK versions ofOprah Winfrey, Simon admitted he wanted to quit while he was still at the top of his game. “I asked a successful guy, ‘What’s the best advice you can give me?’ He said, ‘Simon, know when to leave the fair’. I think that’s good advice – one year, I actually found myself thinking, ‘I’ve run out of insults, I don’t know how I’m going to tell people they suck’.
“Something inside you just says, ‘You know what, it's time to go’,” Simon added. “Without any regrets. I can look back on the past 10 years and say it’s been a blast. I've enjoyed myself. I mean, it's not the most difficult job in the world is it?”
The mogul also used the interview to profess his love for fiancé Mezhgan Hussainy, who he admitted had “softened him”.
“She's helped me see the world differently,” the smitten star said. “She has knocked my socks off. I'd never been good at relationships. I never thought I'd be with one person; now I think I will.
“I genuinely believed no one would want to marry me. I am difficult to live with. I'm selfish, quite weird, and I need time on my own to think – and then I work all night long.”
