Simon Cowell said he will have a more hands-on role on the X Factor as he thinks it's his "baby".

The star quit the panel to work on his US version of the show and has not been a judge for the past two years but he promised he would be coming back.

Last year's series – won by James Arthur – saw a massive slump in viewers and programme bosses have been looking at ways to rekindle interest in the show.

Cowell, who will be back on screens next month with the return of Britain's Got Talent, 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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
