X Factor fans rejoice! Sources have confirmed that Simon Cowell is expected to return to the talent show tonight.

The 58-year-old judge missed last weekend’s episodes after injuring himself after fainting at his London home and falling down the stairs.

But a source told the Press Association: "He’s 99% likely to be on the show tonight," adding: "He’s had a good recovery period and he was at the soundcheck on Thursday.

The unnamed source also noted that Cowell should be back on The X Factor "on top form".

Following the accident, Cowell told The Sun that doctors "think I fainted because I had low blood pressure and so I have got to really take good care of myself to sort that out.

"After all, I am a dad and have more responsibility than ever."

Cowell said he had gone to prepare himself some hot milk, but felt "really dizzy" on his way back upstairs.

He recalled: "Next thing I know someone was putting a neck brace on me and I had a terrible headache, which must have been from me hitting the stairs."
