Exclusive: Cowell confirms start date for US 'X Factor'

By and Dan French
Simon Cowell has confirmed that the US version of The X Factor will begin towards the end of 2011.

There had previously been speculation that Fox would shift American Idol to the Fall to make room for Cowell's new show in January 2011.

Scheduling the new variant of The X Factor in September means that Cowell will simultaneously work on both the UK and US series.
