Simon Cowell wants Britney Spears to appear on TV with him again

Simon Cowell wants to get Britney Spears on a TV show and even made a direct plea to her.

Simon Cowell wants to get Britney Spears on a TV show and even made a direct plea to her.

Cowell spoke about the 'fantastic relationship' he has with the Circus singer and how he wants to collaborate with her again.

The X Factor judge previously worked with Spears on the hit singing contest 10 years ago and, honestly, we're hoping the pair reunite.

Talking about their friendship to E! News, Cowell explained that the pop princess is often misunderstood: "There's a side of Britney a lot of people don't know. I mean, I was on the phone to her two or three hours every time.

"She was super smart, lovely ideas about how to launch someone else's career, which is critical if you're going to be a judge on one of these shows. So I had a fantastic relationship with her."

He went on to add that the pair spent 'so long on the phone' talking about X Factor before they appeared on the series as judges together.

Cowell continued to sing Spears' praises saying 'she's so talented' and that she's really 'interesting' before pleading with the singer to collaborate with him again: "If you're watching Britney and we make a show, please come back and do it with me. It would be amazing. I adore her."

And, to be fair, we'd love to see the pair work together again.

Simon's praise comes after fans expressed confusion about the singer's voice in an Instagram post last week.

The singer shared a video on Tuesday (8 November), of her husband Sam Asghari working out at the gym, with the caption: "Here’s my husband !!! He’s been gone working !!! Supposed to be a week, but ended up being a whole month … it was really hard … he’s home now acting up … I know he’s pretty hot."

In the video, the 'Lucky' singer spurs on her husband saying 'baby that's hot' and 'kill 'em' as he hits a punching bag.

But, as with anything on the internet, a seemingly wholesome moment between the couple became a source of speculation.

One user questioned whether the 'Circus' singer posted the video at all: "Ummmm her team*** who ever the fck that is posts stuff like this when ppl start questioning fr .... Like how sketchy is that? Nothing about this is natural... Nothing!!! "Where the hell is she!! And who the hell is controlling her still! Why do we only see her doing the same things in the old house just like when in the conservatorship . ?? what's going on. We need a LIVE interview!!!!"

However, others hit back at those questioning the video, saying: "Y'all it's literally Britney's voice! If you all want to keep saying 'that's not Britney' and 'it's a different person' do it elsewhere, maybe in a speculation group, but not here. I feel like people have only heard her voice when she's talking in Interviews and in her audio clips, this is her talking normally."

Either way, we'd love to see the star collaborate with Cowell again.
