It's been speculated for a while that the X Factor would be going from the screen to the stage and it appears that the wheels have been set in motion.
Having been busy sitting on the judging panel for the Britain's Got Talent auditions, Simon took to his official Twiiter account to tell his fans that he was on his way to see a workshop for the musical.
The media mogul tweeted: “Am on my way to see the workshop of X factor the musical.”
Simon's tweets come after the media mogul recently revealed that he is considering auditioning for someone to play him when the show hits the West End.

Talking to The Sun, Simon said: "We’re going to see a workshop on the musical in a couple of weeks’ time. What I’m hearing is that it’s very funny and very good.
"That workshop will be the time we decide whether we are in or out. We have to wait and see whether it’s going to work."
Speaking about turning the TV how into a musical, Simon added: "Musicals are not my business but I’m going to approach it like I would a TV show. The team have spent a long time working on this and from the very first time I met Harry Hill he was absolutely besotted with the idea, so we’ll see.
"Who would play me? We may have to do an audition show. That would be a good idea."
