It has been claimed that the next season of the UK version of the hit reality singing competition The X Factor is set for a brand new twist. It seems that Simon Cowell is set to make a return to the UK version of The X Factor, as the Voice of God.
An insider explained to The Sun, "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.”
The source added, "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."
Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for The X Factor claimed, "Simon is closely involved with the show and its direction. Ideas for the new series are still being discussed." The Voice of God would see Simon Cowell appear over Skype when a decision comes to deadlock, where he will choose who goes through and who goes home.
