RadarOnline.com has learned the 34-year-old Welsh native will not be hosting the second season of The X Factor USA.

“I won’t be hosting next season Xfactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time,” Steve tweeted on Monday afternoon.

“Good luck to everyone on the show.”

While Nick Lachey‘s new wife, Vanessa Minnillo, initially lost out on the hosting gig to Steve, she’s now co-hosting ABC’s Wipeout — while Steve appears to be host-less this season.
