Steve Jones is leaving The X Factor stage.

The Fox talent competition host said Monday on Twitter that he wouldn't be returning to host the show's second season.

Jones, a British TV personality, called his departure "a shame" and added that he couldn't "complain as I've had a great time." He gave no reason why he wasn't returning.

Jones was originally slated to host X Factor alongside Nicole Scherzinger, who replaced British pop star Cheryl Cole as a judge when executive producer Simon
Cowell and other producers had second thoughts about Cole joining the series.

Despite consistent viewership, X Factor has failed to achieve popularity similar to American Idol, which Cowell left to import X Factor from the UK
The second season is set to debut later this year.
