TVFormer judge on The X Factor Simon Cowell, 62, will now appear less frequently on British television. He has left his job as a member of the new music show “Walk The Line” and will focus on his role as the show’s producer. In addition, according to insiders, he wants to “spend more time with his family.”
Quill broke his back in 2020 After he got into an accident with his electric bike, which required him to undergo major surgery for more than six hours. With the all-new ‘Walk The Line’, he would have made a return to British television. Something Cowell now cancels at the last minute: “I decided it was best to focus on my role as creator and producer of our show,” he told The Sun.
The media mogul passes the baton to take that striker Gary Barlow. “We have known each other for a long time and I know his musical knowledge is unparalleled,” Coyle said.

According to an insider, there is another reason why the star wants to stay out of the spotlight: “Simon has just gone through a very busy period due to other recordings. He has been away from home for a long time and wants to spend more time with his family in the coming weeks.”
“Simon has nothing to prove and does not want to become more famous,” the insider continued. “Even after a brief absence of a few years, he is still known everywhere. The last thing he needs is another surge of all this attention. He prefers behind the scenes to make sure his new show meets his high standards.”
Cowell is currently working with socialite Lauren Silverman (44 years old). They have a son together: Eric (7). Cowell will be back in the new season of Britain’s Got Talent.
In “Walk The Line”, unknown music artists have to choose whether they want to earn money after an episode or continue playing to become heroes. The longer the artists stay in competition, the higher the prize pool.
