The 57-year-old ITV judge will now send acts home on Saturday night in the new shake-up to keep up with rival Strictly Come Dancing.

In previous years, Sunday night’s hour long episode saw a recap of the Saturday night meaning viewers were not at a loss if they hadn’t tuned in.

The sing-off and elimination part of the show will also be moved to the end of Saturday’s show.

“Simon loves making changes to the show’s format to keep it fresh, so he’s been pitching to producers that the show should ditch the traditional Sunday night format,” the insider said.
