'Restless' Cowell mulling future, says biographer
Simon Cowell feels "restless" with ITV while top executives at the broadcaster resent the TV mogul's influence over their network, biographer Tom Bower has claimed.
Writing in the 'Radio Times' about his new book on Mr Cowell, Mr Bower said that the 52-year-old was preparing for "aggressive negotiations" with ITV over the future of his shows.
His comments are published just days after it was reported that the 'X Factor' and 'Britain's Got Talent' boss was in secret negotiations with rival channel BBC1 over a new drama.
Mr Bower said: "Cowell remains restless, not least about senior ITV executives who resent his influence over the network."
