Simon Cowell has released an official video statement on reports of Britney Spears walking off the X Factor set.

Rumors emerged earlier this week that the singer left her judge's seat after a hopeful contestant butchered her hit song 'Hold it Against Me'.

However, the 30-year-old later denied the incident and claimed that she is having "the best time" as a judge alongside Cowell, Demi Lovato and LA Reid.

Cowell has now released a video via TMZ insisting that reports of a walkout are untrue.

In the video, which also features Lovato, he says: "I'm Simon Cowell, I'm on the panel. There have been no walk-offs on the show."

Spears signed on as host after judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were fired last season.

She signed a $15 million (£9.3m) deal to judge on The X Factor earlier this month, after several weeks of negotiations.
