ITV today announces a new five-year commissioning deal with Syco Entertainment and Thames (part of Fremantle UK).
The agreement extends ITV’s successful and long standing relationship with Simon Cowell and Thames for a further five years, which will see him and his shows appear exclusively on the channel until at least 2024.
The partnership will ensure Britain’s Got Talent continues on ITV until 2024 and also sees The X Factor return in 2020.
Simon Cowell says:
“I am thrilled our relationship with ITV is to continue for the foreseeable future. ITV has always been home to Britain’s Got Talent, The X Factor – and me! - and this long-term commitment shows the mutual respect in our partnership.
I would, of course, like to thank Carolyn and Kevin for their ongoing support plus all the teams at ITV, Syco and thames for their hard work and dedication.”
