“After the best 11 years with the X Factor, it's time for me to check out and cut loose,” he wrote.

The voice artist has had his role on the show reduced in recent years, only featuring during the live shows.

Peter became iconic during his ‘X Factor’ stint for booming out the contestants names at the start of their performances, the most famous of which is undoubtedly his “RAAAACHEEEEL ADEDEEEJIIII!”

His exit comes after a number of changes to the show, including replacing host Dermot O’Leary with Caroline Flack and Olly Murs, and axing judges Louis Walsh and Mel B in favour of Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw.

‘The X Factor’ returns to ITV later this year.
