Steve Jones: OUT of The X Factor

by at . Comments

After a month of speculation that Steve Jones is leaving The X Factor, the host confirmed Monday that he's indeed packing it in after the inaugural US season.

On his Twitter page, Jones calls his departure "a shame," but adds, "I can't complain as I've had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show."

He gave no reason why he wasn't returning for a second season.

Last month, a rep for the Welsh TV star called reports of his firing "a fabrication," though the show's producer and judge, Simon Cowell, promised changes.

Cowell recently refused to deny reports that Jones was getting axed. Nicole Scherzinger is also rumored to be exiting, though that hasn't been confirmed.

"I don’t think he did a bad job but ... there is a Brit limit on the show," he told the U.K.'s Mirror, implying that a shake-up was in the works ... which it was.

Will you miss Steve?
