Simon Cowell is set to return filming The X Factor 2015 this week following his mum’s sudden death on 5th July.
The X Factor bosses have confirmed to TwitCelebGossip that Simon Cowell will return filming this week, a few days after the death of his beloved mother, Julie Brett, who was 89.
An X Factor spokesperson said: “We can confirm that The X Factor auditions were cancelled on Tuesday,
“We will now start auditions in Manchester on Wednesday and Thursday this week.”
