Simon Cowell revealed his big fear was “no longer being relevant” as he prepared to return as an X Factor judge on ITV next weekend.
Simon said: “Whether I’m liked is immaterial. The only thing that bothers me is whether or not I am relevant any longer.”
“If you’re on these shows and not having hit records or hit artists in your real life, you look a bit of an idiot.”
“You’re just a judge for hire. I couldn’t do that.”
But Simon showed his softer side when asked if partner Lauren Silverman asked him if she looked good in an outfit. He told US station AXS: “I just say yes.”
