Simon Cowell has no plans to retire any time soonOctober 21st, 2008 - 6:44 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 21 (ANI): Simon Cowell has scrapped his plans of retiring at the age of 50, after fellow X Factor judge Louis Walsh said that hes losing the plot.
The 49-year-old in an interview last year had said that he would retire when he turns 50. His spokesman says that Cowell has no plans to retire any soon.
Cowell hit back on Louis, insisting that he was going nowhere.
Simons not going anywhere. Hes not quitting and he wont retire next year, Daily Star quoted, his spokesman Max Clifford, as saying.
Hes told me hell go on and on and on. And so he should.
The thing about Simon is, people want him on telly. Shows like X Factor, Britains Got Talent and American Idol wouldnt work if he wasnt there.
He is the centre of everything. He is the reason theyre such a hit, he added.
Cowell was quoted last year saying: I am contracted for another two or three seasons in Britain.
By that point the public will be sick to death of me anyway and it will be time to go.
There has to come a point when Ill step down from being on camera. You cant do this forever, he said. (AHNI)
