"I’m not part of the Idol team at the moment," Nigel told OK! at the finale of So You Think You Can Dance at CBS studios. "I’ve said I want to concentrate on So You Think You Can Dance."

"I go back into the Idol team next week," he explained to OK!. "I will then hopefully get to the truth and not listen to—the only people who are talking about it at the moment appears to be the media—FOX isn’t talking, Freemantle isn’t talking and 19 isn’t talking and it’s just the media talking amongst themselves at the moment so while I can’t give you anything proper, it’s not worth me talking about it."
