Cowell confirms Spears spot on 'X Factor'

Simon Cowell has confirmed Britney Spears will appear on his British talent show 'The X-Factor', admitting she's the "number one booking in the world".

Spears will perform on the show to promote her comeback album 'Circus' and the music mogul, who has always been a big fan of the 'Toxic' singer, can't wait.

He says: "We have the number one show in England. It's the best show for her to perform on. We're absolutely thrilled to have her.

"Everyone wants to work with her because she's a star. She's the number one booking in the world at the moment for a show... The fact that she goes a bit crazy occasionally makes her more interesting.

"And, if she wants to shave her head before she comes on the show, she's welcome to. I don't care."
