Nicole Scherzinger For X Factor Judges' Houses
Simon Cowell & Louis Walsh reportedly clash over who gets to work with her...
Despite the return of Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole, Cowell is said to be desperate to 'liven up' the new series of the show by asking popular guest judge Scherzinger to remain part of the judging panel.
The music mogul is said to have even offered the Pussycat Dollsstar a private jet to get her to locations, something that could make Chezza even more anxious about her position as a judge on the show after missing some of the auditions due being taken ill with malaria.
A source told The Mirror: “Of all the guest judges, Nicole was the one Simon and Louis got on with best. Cheryl and Dannii might still be on the show – but Nicole is the hot new girl on the block."
"She is sexy, sassy and tells it like it is. Her opinions are valid when it comes to the contestants. And she looks great."
They continued: “While Simon has said he’ll lend her his private jet, though, it seems more likely she’ll hook up with Louis because they got on so well.”
“Louis is even saying she can choose the location for the Judges’ Houses stage for his acts if she comes along.”
A source added to The Sun: "The bribes are increasingly over the top. Simon was laughing at Louis during the auditions because he was following Nicole around everywhere, but he won't be laughing if she goes with Louis."
Scherzinger is also rumoured to land the coveted job as a judge on the US version of the X Factor over Cheryl, after impressing Simon and TV bosses during her stint on the current UK series.
