He told the : "I like to watch things like
the X Factor but I do find myself watching it on catch up and fast forwarding through the performances.
“I think to myself ‘Why am I watching this programme?’

He added: “It runs for bloody months.
"No other show can run for months, it’s like putting on a soap opera every year, so that’s what we’ve got to work out, but I’ve got a plan.”
“Now we’ve just got to get the dates sorted.”
Simon then joked: “But don’t give too much away, I don’t want my competitors to know.”
