Steve Jones revealed on Twitter Monday night that he won’t return as “The X Factor” host in season 2.
“I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time,” the British TV personality tweeted.
He added, “Good luck to everyone on the show.”
After receiving dismal reviews for his hosting skills during the inaugural season of the FOX competition series, speculation ran rampant that Jones would be canned.
At the time, the network and “X Factor” producers refused to comment on the reports, while Jones’ rep insisted the parties hadn’t discussed him leaving the show.
Now that Jones is leaving, who do you think should be the next “X Factor” host?
