Simon Cowell is reportedly ready to sign a deal that’ll plonk him back on the judging panel of the UK version of the X Factor.
“Cowell is determined to get the show back to its best. He’ll sign the deal very soon, but has told the team that he’s on board,” a source tells the Mirror.
The source added that “everyone’s over the moon” and that the head honcho will be living back in London.
Rumours also continue to swirl around the possible return of Cheryl Cole, who according to the Sun is also in talks to head back to the show. Cheryl left the panel in 2010 and has since had a bit of a rocky time of it with the X Factor brand. The Fight For This Love singer appeared alongside Simon in just one show in the US. Cole won a settlement claiming loss of earnings in November 2013.
Emma is RadioTimes.com’s resident reality TV expert and is most likely to be found chasing Simon Cowell down the street, cancelling her social life to keep up with the latest batch of sob stories and trying to get selfies with celebrities. Emma is a chat show addict and quotes Friends more than is probably healthy.
