The Breaking Dawn actor says the show hasn't been the same since the two judges left the series.

Hollywood actor Robert Pattinson has revealed he is a big fan of The X Factor UK and wants to see both Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell back on the judging panel.

The Twilight Saga actor says the ITV series hasn't been the same since both the 'Call My Name' singer and the music mogul stepped down from the panel, and feels both should return for the 2013 series of the show.

"I would like to Cheryl back on The X Factor UK," Robert revealed to the Mail Online this week. "It's never going to be the same now Simon [Cowell] is not there anymore.

"But having Cheryl back would be good for the show," the Twilight star explained. "It hasn't been the same since the two of them left, and if there's a chance to get her back Simon should.

"In fact Simon should do both shows," Robert suggested. "The US show is midweek and the UK at weekends - come on Simon you have enough money to charter your own plane!"

Simon Cowell is currently serving as head judge on The X Factor USA, which is expected to return with a revamped judging panel later this year.

The X Factor UK will also return on ITV later this year, although current panelists Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Tulisa Contostavlos have yet to confirm their return.

Cheryl Cole is preparing to join Girls Aloud on their 'Ten' reunion tour later this month at Newcastle Metro Arena on 21st February.
