By: Amanda Hasaka / January 30, 2012

Simon & Paula reunited!
The pair start filming on 'The X Factor.'
Sorry Steve Jones’ fans, the dreamy British fella has confirmed that he will not be returning to host the second season of the hit FOX reality show.

On Monday, Steve tweeted about his status as X Factor host, saying:

“I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show.”

Oh no! While we’re sad to hear the news, we feel like we should start brainstorming for who could take over next season.

The Celebuzz staff is coming up with our own suggestions, (Mario Lopez, Nick Lachey, Nick Cannon, etc) but we want to hear YOURS! Share who you think would be an awesome host in the comments!
