COMMENT: Funding PTSD programme could end up saving money

Have your say

When you’re a really big name like Simon Cowell and enjoying huge success, there’s only one way your career can go in the end – and that’s down.

Poor Simon is not having the best of times right now. Host Steve Jones and judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul have all been ousted from the US version of The X Factor after just one series.

Simon and Fox chiefs apparently decided to let the trio go after the show got poor ratings.

But, honestly, what did he expect?

I know Simon wanted to compete with American Idol, but in terms of judges you can’t get much bigger than Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.

After all his experience in the business, I thought Simon would have known that.
