We don't think this is a good idea!
She wants Derek to help her choose the acts she wants the mentor on the shows. Last year, Will Young helped out Chezza when it came time to choosing her top three acts.
Apparently Cheryl thinks Derek will have an eye for someone who can sing AND act, impressing Simon Cowell.
A source reveals:
"Simon thought last year's contestants didn't move enough. He called one of them, Stacey Solomon, a singing candle. Cheryl thinks that having dancer and choreographer Derek on board will boost her chances of winning. She can help with their singing and he can teach them some moves."
She's also reportedly filming her Judges' House episode in LA as opposed to the UK so she can be close to Derek.
We don't get it, but the heart wants what it wants!
