X Factor to finish next year, says Sinitta

Next year's X Factor UK series will be the last, according to Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriend Sinitta.

The series has undergone a somewhat turbulent couple of years after media mogul Cowell left his seat on the judging panel in 2011 to join the US version of the TV talent show.

The 2012 competition has seen its ratings drop below eight million for the first time in five years, with the audience reducing after its launch in August.

Cowell's friend and occasional X Factor contributor Sinitta said that she has been told that X Factor 2013 - its tenth anniversary - will be its last. The singer told Closer magazine:

"I'm told next year is going to be the last. It'll have been 10 years, so they need to finish on a high."
