London: Simon Cowell`s long-time friend Sinitta has revealed that the music mogul will quit the live shows and final of `The X Factor` in Britain.
He won`t ever come back to the UK version," The Daily Star quoted her as saying.
"His focus is on US X Factor now. It`s not like Simon will do one series over there and then come back once it`s established. He`ll be staying over there indefinitely now," she said.
"Though some people are hoping he`ll fly back and forth in the autumn to appear on both X Factors.
"But it just can`t happen. As a mentor he needs to be around to support his acts. If he spends a week in the UK, whichever act got voted off the American show would be pretty fed-up and angry, " she added.
