  • Kelly Brook and Cheryl Cole in battle of the babes as Brook lands TV role

    Kelly Brook is set to give Cheryl Cole a run for her money as hottest TV judge – as she lands a new role on Simon Cowell’s other hit show, Britain’s Got Talent.

    The stunning brunette signed a megabucks deal late last night – and was immediately jetted off to Manchester to start filming the first scenes.

    A friend of the star told the Metro: ‘She is super-excited at the challenge.

    ‘She has done judging work before with Dirty Dancing on Living TV so she has some experience in the field, although it was not on terrestrial TV.

    ‘It’s a big show that she really wants to do.’

    ITV producers summoned the 29-year-old to work this morning, her agent confirmed.

    Kelly – who is dating rugby ace Danny Cipriani – will not replace any of the existing judges, but will join as a fourth judge alongside show boss Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan, and 37-year-old TV star, Amanda Holden.

    Let’s hope it’s more successful than her stint on The Big Breakfast…
