TMZ - celebrity gossip, which is renown to be the first to break entertainment news, is reporting that the Girls Aloud singer has been dropped from the judging panel and is to be replaced by much loved Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. Nicole was originally announced as co-presenter alongside Brit Steve Jones, however she is now allegedly to replace Cole on the prestigious panel.
Confirmation of TMZ’s report will follow in the hours to come as to whether any truth lies in this story. To me, I’m shocked - I never thought they’d drop her this quick. Although it was reported that bosses had required her to agree to a ‘drop-out’ clause if American audience didn’t warm to her, but what was it that (allegedly) made them kick out Cole? Team chemistry? Ratings? Struggling to adapt to her accent? Who knows. Tomorrow things shall be a lot clearer!
