Simon Cowell will be returning to the X Factor UK after revealing the show is like his "baby".
The popular singing contest has seen a drop in viewers ever since Simon swanned off to the US to launch The X Factor USA, but Simon promises he'll be making a return soon.
Speaking to Hello! magazine, Simon said, "I'm definitely getting more involved and will have a role in the next series... I'm not going to lie - I do miss doing it, because it's like my baby."
He added, "It's been difficult the last two years not being on the show as I always had a great time and the last time that I did do it, it was such a brilliant year... So at some point of course I'm going to come back and do the show."
Simon has already hinted about big changes coming to the show on Twitter writing, "There will be a lot of changes on X factor uk and USA. But good changes. I feel excited for both shows this year."
Do you think Simon will actually return to the panel next series?
