The music mogul, 59, spoke to The Sun saying “I want to clear up any myths — because I’ve got some exciting news.”

“I’ve had a meeting with ITV, I’ve told them what I think we’d like to do with X Factor because we’ve been waiting to have this opportunity.”

The upcoming series is being described as “huge,” with Cowell saying

“We haven’t exactly confirmed the dates or the order of the shows, but essentially there are going to be two versions of X Factor running this year . I think it’s going to be huge, it’s the best I’ve felt about this show in years.”
