Simon Cowell has reportedly revealed that he will not be returning to the UK X Factor this year. The talent show judge was rumoured to be making a return to the British edition of the show in 2013, after two years away while he made the Us version for Fox. However, Cowell apparently denied the reports when asked if he was planning a return at yesterday's Britain's Got Talent auditions in Cardiff, according to The Sun.
