Brian Friedman is returning to 'The X Factor' in a reported £200k deal to save the disastrous dance routines of the past series
Brian Friedman is making his return to 'The X Factor.'
The choreographer - who has worked with Britney Spears in the past - is being brought back after Simon Cowell decided that he is the perfect person to save the disastrous dance routines seen in the past series, which were criticised for being lacklustre.
The American previously impressed the show's mogul so much that he was chosen to replace Louis Walsh on the judging panel but he was sacked in the same year.
A show source told The Sun newspaper: "America is teeming with great choreographers so Simon could spare him to return to the UK. Last year's performances were often atrocious in Simon's eyes mainly because the choreography was all wrong.
"Brian instinctively knows what works and he was sorely missed. Simon has dug out his cheque book and given him a load of cash and said 'fix it.'
"The producers are delighted because they have the top guy back on board."
It has been reported the creative director will earn £200,000 for his stint in the series when he flies to the UK for the live shows.
