Meanwhile, a TV expose is apparently planned, with involvement by two major production companies, telling all about X Factor behind the scenes.
The news comes just months after former contestant Katie Waissel reported to police that she had allegedly experienced a sexual assault at the hands of one of SyCo’s employees.
The singer, who made the finals of the show back in 2010, says the assault took place in a Los Angeles hotel, and that the employee had also worked for Sony Music.
Katie, 36, made a statement claiming: “I may not speak often of my past and continued trauma, as quite frankly I’m still navigating it, but do not mistake my silence for being silenced.
“I have a duty to my younger self, to all others that have been through similar, to get the justice and closure we rightly deserve.”
Following her complaint to the LA police department, she added that her allegation was now “a criminal and legal case”.
Simon Cowell has been approached by Express.co.uk for comment.
