After an amusing appearance as a contestant on Sale of the Century, Cowell came to prominence on UK TV screens on Pop Idol as a judge in 2001.
After the ITV show ended in 2002, Cowell launched The X Factor in 2004 followed by Britain’s Got Talent in 2007.
He will be back on The X Factor this autumn alongside judges Robbie Williams, Ayda Field and Louis Tomlinson while BBC1 is launching The Greatest Dancer – a brand new entertainment series from Cowell’s production company Syco.
