X Factor: Simon Cowell Reveals Why He Sacked Kate And Louis
For once Simon tried to play down the whole Mr Nasty image and admitted that the decision was not all his doing.
He revealed: “ITV wanted to make some changes to the show. They likened it to Coronation Street.
“You have to change and add to the cast every couple of years. It’s how you keep a show successful.”
When asked why he decided to let Louis go, Cowell said: “The honest answer is we tried to keep Louis.
“But he couldn’t commit to another season. He has a lot of things on the go, like the Boyzone reunion.”
Of the new-look show, Cowell added: “There will be four judges. I know there have already been a lot of names put about. But the decision hasn’t been made.
“However, it’s fair to say there are a number of people under consideration.”
