Sinitta lets slip that Cheryl is heading to the States with Simon Cowell for American X Factor
It’s been rumoured for some time, but a very well-placed source reveals Cheryl Cole will be heading Stateside to join the US version of the X Factor.
Sinitta – Simon Cowell’s ‘right hand woman’ on the talent show – let slip that the Geordie judge will soon be joining the panel on the American version of the hit show.
Cowell has already said he is quitting X Factor in the UK to concentrate on building his empire in America, and now he’s taking Cheryl with him.
‘I know she is definitely in the line-up and is being considered,’ said Sinitta.
But the 41-year-old 80s pop star refused to reveal any more details to The Metro.
‘I don’t know if I can say,’ she hinted. ‘This is how I got my ass in trouble a few weeks ago.’
Cheryl, 27, has previously said she’d jump at the chance to be a judge on the US version of the show, but worried if anyone would understand her Geordie accent!
‘It’s kind of really scary, you know?’ she said. ‘They don’t know me out there, and I’ve got this weird accent, and they’d be a bit like ‘what?’
‘I love the thought of it and I would absolutely love to do it,’ she added.
