A Cole in one

It seems as if the speculation surrounding US XFactor has been going on for centuries, at least back to the time of the Titanic sinking, at least. While an official decision hasn't been made yet (yep, they need a few more weeks to drop hints and generate headlines), a Fox TV chief publicly praised our Chezza, the clearest sign yet that the Geordie has it in the bag.

Peter Rice, a Fox network honcho told The Daily Mail, 'If Cheryl was to be on the show, I think she’s proved that she’s a terrific judge. She has wonderful chemistry with Simon. There’s great speculation. I think Simon is still meeting and trying to find the right mixture ...It’ll be four judges as it is in England - it’s two men, two women… one of which will be Simon.'

The producer continued, while chomping on a cigar and tweaking his braces, 'Simon’s going to come to us and he’s going to say, 'This is who I would like the judges to be,' and we’ll have a conversation about it. I think it’s an amazing TV show... It’s just so well produced, so fun, so wildly entertaining… I think if they discover the next Susan Boyle next year on X Factor - that’s not something that will happen on Idol.'

Cheryl, sounds like it's yours to throw away...
