Simon claimed: "I have [an ITV contract] for this year and that is it. At the moment you are going to see me doing one show [next year], and not in England."
He added: "There has got to be a mood here for these shows, and I have always been very conscious of that. You can’t force anything. It has got to be fun. The minute it stops becoming fun, bye bye."
A source also supported Cowell claims, suggesting he is to focus on his commitments in the US stating: "The American X Factor show can make him huge amounts of money and is his priority."
