The UK version of The X Factor has been receiving a lot of criticism this year and there have been calls for Simon Cowell to make a return to the judging panel in a bid to save the show. Now, former X Factor contestants JLS have called for Simon Cowell to return but admit that it may be difficult.
Marvin Humes explained to Digital Spy, “He has to return, definitely. He still does Britain's Got Talent. Obviously with the schedule of the US X Factor it's very difficult, but he has to come back.”
JB then added, “You have to wait and see what happens to the next batch of finalists, or people from the show next year. See who's doing well and who's releasing. I don't think it's on the way out at all. People say, 'The winners never do this, the winners never do that'. But there are winners who have been successful - and it's not just down to the winners.”
The X Factor continues this weekend, with the live performance show airing on ITV1 on Saturday evening and then the results show airing on Sunday night on ITV1.
Do you think Simon Cowell will return to the UK version of The X Factor?
