Simon Cowell has signed a deal to keep X Factor and Britain's Got Talent on TV screens for another three years.

No-one is sure how the famous judge plans to split his time between appearing on shows once the US version of X Factor launches next year.

It's thought he might join the British competition for the later stages or fly between the two countries each week.

Simon Cowell said: "I'm committed to making sure both shows get bigger and better each year."
