ITV chiefs ‘resent’ Simon Cowell
Cowell feels ‘restless’ with broadcaster
SIMON Cowell feels “restless” with ITV while top executives at the broadcaster resent the TV mogul’s huge influence over their network, biographer Tom Bower has claimed.
Writing about his new book on Simon Cowell, Bower said the 52-year-old was preparing for “aggressive negotiations” with ITV over the future of his shows.
His comments were published just days after it was reported that the X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent boss was in secret negotiations with rival channel BBC1 over a new drama.
Simon was also reported to have told friends he felt “betrayed” by an “unsupportive” ITV.
