Its sad but true that I am actually excited that the X Factor is coming back. In my humble opinion, with the exception of Gary Barlow, the X Factor hasn't been the same without Simon, or indeed Cheryl.
It had gone down hill a bit, I didn't like the arena auditions, and it was all getting a bit "meh". Simon is the key to its success, and without him, it just didn't quite make the grade.
His return heralds its return to greatness, hopefully. Throw in Cheryl's come back, especially after their infamous fall out, and its going to be exciting again.
Saturday nights will be stay in nights again. :)
