David, 51, resigned as a judge on the show after being forced to apologise for foul-mouthed remarks about contestants.

A source disclosed to The Sun;
“David has decided to bow out after a ten-year run. He wants to leave on a high after a wonderful time.
“Being on the show has been a huge source of entertainment and joy for him and he is arguably the most popular member of the panel.
“He hasn’t taken the decision lightly, but it feels like time to move on and focus on his other projects.
“His team have quietly been having conversations over the past few days where it has been made clear that David is readying himself to step down – and then producers will start to think about who might replace him.
“His exit might not be popular with fans who adore him.
“But for David it appears that now, after an amazing ten years on the show, it is the right time to move on.”
For the 16th series, head judge Simon Cowell, 63, and panellists Amanda Holden, 51, and Alesha Dixon, 44, are expected to return.
