After stepping down from his primetime role, Simon Cowell is still in charge of a new ITV show.
EXCLUSIVE: Simon Cowell has revealed that he isn’t leaving television forever, and that he loves working “behind the camera” on his new talent show, Walk The Line.
Simon Cowell has announced that he is not leaving television forever, and that he will continue to host his new talent show, Walk The Line.
The 62-year-old host of Britain’s Got Talent recently stated that he will not be on the judging panel for his new ITV show, Walk The Line.
The music mogul announced that he would “take a step back” from the cameras, and that he would be replaced by Gary Barlow of Take That.
He’s since disclosed that this does not mean he’ll be leaving the television industry forever, and that he’ll be back on camera in the future.
Simon told Brinkwire at the Together For Short Lives ball that he’s simply taking a break from the new show because he believed he could contribute more “behind the scenes.”
He also acknowledged that he loves to be “behind the camera” rather than in front of it.
Simon responded when asked if he was indeed taking a break from television: “Oh, it’s only for this one show.
“Yes, occasionally, because I produce the shows on which I perform. I simply considered everything and concluded, “You know what, this is exactly the correct thing to do just to take a step back for a second.”
“You know, I’ve done it before, but I still prefer being behind the camera to being in front of it.”
Even though he’s not on the judging panel, Simon’s partner Lauren Silverman, who was standing next to him at the event, confirmed that he’s still in charge of the program.
“He’s still in command!” Lauren added.
“And since this is a new program, I just felt I could definitely do more behind the scenes,” Simon continued.
Later, Simon couldn’t help but tease his new line-up for the new ITV talent show, and it turns out he still has more guests to unveil.
Fans should expect “some shocks” from the lineup, according to him, as he’d only recently learned that another celebrity will be joining his show.
He stated, ” “Sure, sure. Yes, we have an intriguing lineup, and we still have more names to reveal. Yeah.
“There will be some unexpected twists and turns. On the way, I discovered yet another name. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
