Cowell’s latest appearance on the panel comes as a group of former X Factor contestants prepare a £1million intimidation lawsuit against his company SyCo.

The unidentified claimant added, “Myself and five former deeds have agreed to join forces and get the justice we feel we deserve.”

‘Simon has to take responsibility. We lost a lot of money by having periods in our lives where we weren’t making money to deal with trauma that was still embedded in the show.

SyCo said there are no allegations that Cowell was in any way aware of or personally involved in the incidents or behavior alleged by the plaintiffs.

A spokesperson for X Factor said: “The well-being of participants is our No. 1 priority and we have robust measures and well-being teams in place to ensure that support is always available.

“We are not aware of any legal action being taken against The X Factor and although we have not been on the air for several years, we remain open to discuss concerns with anyone who chooses to do so.”
