Simon Cowell 'To Phone It In' For The X Factor?
Reality TV mogul reportedly considering Skype role on UK show...
The Sun reports that the show boss's schedule will prevent him from taking part in the show every week, but that he might appear via video to cast a deciding vote when the judges cannot agree.
A source told the paper: "This is serious now for Simon. BGT losing out to The Voice is one thing, but he's terrified this is going to have negative repercussions for The X Factor.
"All options are being considered and having him as the Voice of God is one of them. He quite likes the idea.
"X Factor is Simon's baby and he'll do whatever he can to make it a success. He won't let something like the Atlantic get in the way of things."
We told you earlier this week how Simon was apparently considering being nicer to contestants to boost ratings.
