Scary Simon Cowell is missed by Susan Boyle

Wednesday October 31, 2012

He's just been voted the most scary UK celebrity, but Susan Boyle says she misses Simon Cowell on the X Factor.

The judge and music mogul, who has been made into a pumpkin by supermarket ASDA, has topped a poll to find out which celebrity Brits would be most terrified to meet.

But despite his spooky new accolade, Susan believes that his show has lost its sparkle since the godfather of X Factor left its judging reins in the hands of Gary Barlow.

The star said: "Simon will be annoyed I'm saying this, and I'll probably be punished, but there's no show really without Simon as the top judge."

She addded: "There's no show without the main man." It seems that the singer may be right. Since the judging panel changed, the X Factor has annually decreased in viewer ratings, dropping to its worst figures this year since 2007.

BBC One prime time rival Strictly Come Dancing has ranked at the top of the table, averaging a million more viewers than the rigorous singing competition.
