Britney Spears has left the American version of The X Factor, it has been confirmed.

Spears said she had made the "difficult decision" to leave Fox TV's The X Factor after one season.

In a statement issued on Friday, the pop singer said she had an incredible time working on the US singing contest but that it was time to get back into the studio to record.

It was previously widely reported that Spears and The X Factor were parting ways after a season in which the show's ratings fell and Spears received lacklustre reviews as a panellist.

Fellow panellist Antonio Reid previously announced he was leaving, giving creator and executive producer Simon Cowell two spots to fill.

Demi Lovato is expected to rejoin Cowell on the show.

You have a tendency to rest on your laurels when you have lots of free time. A demanding schedule forces you to step up your game. If your energy starts to flag, make time for daily exercise. It seems counterintuitive, but moving your body can actually refresh you. Working with a partner is strongly advised. A collaborator will attend to practical matters.More
