An insider of the show said The sun: “Globally, it is still a phenomenon and brings in millions every year. But in the UK there is no doubt that it has become slightly outdated. Simon stays at the top of his game and knows how to make a sure hit. He owns the rights to the show, and it’s his calling – not ITV’s – whether or not he gives it up.
