Cowell: All four should come back

Simon Cowell wants all four UK 'X Factor' judges to come back to the show.

The music mogul - who left the British version of the talent show in 2011 to start up a US one - thinks Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland, who was widely rumoured to have been dropped from the panel, to appear again in 2012.

He said: "My gut feeling is all four should come back."

For now, Simon has been focusing his attention on 'Britain's Got Talent', where is a judge with Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden, and he has praised the blonde actress for her "incredible" strength after coming back to the show just a short time after giving birth to daughter Hollie last month.

He added to The Sun: "Amanda is an incredible story. She came into work the other day looking amazing and I said to her, 'Two weeks ago you were literally lying on your death bed.'

"There she was, looking incredible and loving every minute -- it's like she's made of steel."

'Britain's Got Talent' hits TV screens later this month.
