X Factor AXED as Simon Cowell calls time on show after 17 years

The Sun says: The ITV juggernaut excited us with a string of talented newcomers — many now established stars of pop and TV.

It last aired in 2018 and is now being shelved by Simon Cowell for at least five years.

But sources close to the 61-year-old music mogul believe The X Factor is “unlikely” to return to UK screens.

Simon will now focus on a new big-money gameshow called Walk The Line.

A show insider said of X Factor: “Globally, it is still a phenomenon and rakes in millions every year. But in the UK, there is no question it has become slightly stale.

“Simon remains at the top of his game and knows how to make a hit. He owns the rights to the show, and it’s his call — not ITV’s — whether or not he drops it.

“Clearly the last thing he wants is for X Factor to fizzle out with a whimper and become a bit of a joke — especially in contrast to the show in its pomp
