Music mogul Simon Cowell will not attend the auditions for the new season of Britain's Got Talent and says he will eventually leave the show.
"I won't be doing the BGT auditions next year. I will join the show at the semi-final stage," thesun.co.uk quoted Cowell as saying.
"I will eventually leave but nothing is decided yet. We launch US X Factor next year too which is a huge challenge," he said.
Cowell said that he likes Britain's Got Talent "but it takes a hell of a lot of time. You sit watching horrific acts and think 'I genuinely can't do this any more'."
