So the hot tv gossip this week has been all about X Factor wanting to fire their host — Steve Jones.
Not only are people whispering about that, but they're saying the show thinks Nicole Scherzinger could be his replacement since being a judge has kicked her a$$!
But NOW, according to Steve's reps and the show's, there have absolutely been no talks of the sort whatsoever.
To reiterate, statements read:
There have been absolutely no conversations about Steve Jones leaving The X Factor.
No discussions have been had and no decisions will be made about any contracts until the New Year.
Steve is very happy with the outcome of this season. And he looks forward to being back and discovering more talent in the New Year.
Mmmhmm, no "talks." …. …. ….
What do U think's gonna happen??

You'll have to forgive us for the rhyme, we just couldn't resist!
And it looks like X Factor may not be resistant to the idea of a new host!
According to a UK newspaper, it will take a miracle for the American version to keep Steve Jones around. And apparently he's devastated.
While official reps for the show neither deny or confirm the report, only saying "no decisions about contracts will be made until the new year."
Hermmm…not lookin' good, Stevie! Not lookin' good!
Who could they pull in to host if he gets the boot?? Some ae saying Nicole Scherzinger could leave the judge's table to host…which we wouldn't argue! We think she's proven judging isn't exactly her favorite! LOL!

He may not be as popular as Ryan Seacrest yet, but he's definitely got the goods in our opinion!
X Factor host Steve Jones sat down to chat with Ellen DeGeneres about what it's like to host the hit reality competition show compared to his old gig as a male model.
That's inneresting stuff, but all we really cared about was when Ellen dared him to take off his shirt in front of the camera and put on a custom t-shirt she made for him.
Thankfully, he accepts the challenge and bares his hawt, hairy Welsh chest for all of America to see!
If you want to see this hunk go shirtless for Ellen, watch the video above (and fast forward to the 2:30 mark)!

Listen up, gamblers!
According to online gambling site Bodog, X Factor contestant Melanie Amaro is the favorite to win season one of the show with 1/1 odds!
In other X Factor-gambling related news, host Steve Jones is NOT expected to return for season two according to Bodog, which has him leaving the show at 1/2 odds.
What do U think? Would U bet in favor of Melanie winning and Steve leaving X Factor???

We wonder if these two got into any extracurricular activity up at the judges house!
X Factor's Nicole Scherzinger and the show's host, Steve Jones, were originally set to emcee the reality competition together until the former Pussycat Doll replaced Cheryl Cole on the judges panel, but apparently, their relationship has developed far beyond just professional!
A source explains:

The hosts have been chosen for Simon Cowell's US version of X Factor.
Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones will host the new singing competition reality show, which begins shooting this Sunday in El Lay.
Jones is most well-known for hosting UK's T4 Music and the BBC's As Seen on TV.
Inneresting choice. Nicole seems like a right fit. And it looks like Simon really wants to give his fellow Brits a chance at stardom here in the U.S.
We're interested to see if they Steve and Nicole have chemistry.
