Simon Cowell is reportedly set to host the auditions for the upcoming celebrity edition of The X Factor at his home in Los Angeles.
A source told the Daily Star this weekend: & # 39; Wheels are moving to hold the auditions at Simon's house.
& # 39; Producers think this will make the series extra flashy, which seems appropriate considering the participants will be celebs.

There is much speculation about the new season of the show, which is said to be the & # 39; civilian & # 39; abolish auditions for famous faces and past participants.
In addition to a celeb edition, it is also said that there will be an & # 39; All Star & # 39; edition with the hope of luring back earlier success stories such as Leona Lewis, Shayne Ward and Fleur East, as well as the less serious acts who were going to find celebrities such as Jedward, Wagner and Chico.
The decision to remove The X Factor from the UK for the audition round is a good omen for all involved, since it was reported last week that Simon & # 39; s London villa is spooky.

According to former owner Christian Levett, the London accommodation (which Simon bought in October last year for £ 15 million to live with partner Lauren Silverman and their five-year-old son Eric) is being chased by Antinous – the lover of Hadrian, the ruler of the Roman Empire from 117 to 138.
As defeated The Sun, Levett claims that he himself brought the spirit of Antinous into his home when he bought a statue from him in 2014, which unintentionally released the spirit of the Bithynian Greek into the grounds.

& # 39; It was delivered in a crate & # 39 ;, said the hedge fund billionaire. & # 39; When I was locked up, I heard the sound of heavy objects being knocked out of the sitting room, where Antinous was still in his coffin. The same happened the following two nights. But there was nobody there. & # 39;
Another source also claims that Simon, 59, believes that this is more than just an urban legend.
& # 39; Simon believes in ghosts, so he is panicked by this story. I don't think he was aware when he went inside. Maybe he should call a ghost party, & they said.
Further fuel has been added to this fire by a neighbor who also weighs on this fire.

They said: & I know that when Christian lived there, the family heard inexplicable sounds. There would be a bump in a bedroom and a sound from below the next night. & # 39;
The story of Antinous is tragic; he was a favorite of Hadrian and was known as special & # 39; beautiful & # 39 ;. The couple loved hunting together, history reports.
It was generally believed that the couple had a sexual relationship – and many were jealous of Antinous.
He died in October 130 under mysterious circumstances, while traveling along the Nile.

He never returned and the cause of his death is still a mystery, with many speculations that he was murdered by other members of the empire, jealous of his relationship with Hadrian.
Others have speculated that he fell and drowned in the Nile, while some believe he took his own life.
After his death, Hadrian deified Antinous and created a cult dedicated to him. Since his death, he has been known as both a hero and as & # 39; the gay god & # 39 ;.
Christians and Gentiles tried to destroy the cult later in history because of its homosexual undertones, but it is still considered alive and well.
Whether the Roman favorite indeed fits the court of the X Factor must be determined – but Simon is no stranger to the paranormal.

Three years ago he claimed that he had always been in contact with the other party.
& # 39;[The dead] just want to make contact and say hello, & he said to The Sun. & # 39; I had [a ghost] in my house when I lived on Kingston Hill. My mother and father stayed with me and I heard this banging on the door.
& # 39; I went to their room and said, "You knocked on my door?" And they said, "It wasn't us."
& # 39; There was also a dog in the house that blurted out. The next day I heard this pounding noise and all the things had fallen into the kitchen. There was no logical explanation. There was no wind but there was certainly a presence. But I wasn't scared. & # 39;
This meeting resulted in an expulsion, Simon later revealed.
