Now that Cheryl Cole seems to be relatively close to landing a judging position on the US version of the reality competition, Kimberley Walsh is reportedly set to replace Konnie Huq as the presenter of UK's companion series, The Xtra Factor, in light of rumors that Simon Cowell fired the latter for her underwhelming performance during the last season!
According to sources:
"Kimberley was worried that she wouldn’t be suitable for the role with Cole as a judge, as she may have been biased towards her acts but now Cheryl is off to America she feels it is the perfect opportunity. Cheryl has put in a good word for her and bosses were impressed after seeing her present Suck My Pop last year. It’s pretty much a done deal."
Nice! Isn't it so funny how things work out sometimes?
And we're thrilled that Chezza was nice enough to show her support! Such a good friend!
What do U think?? Is Kimberley a good fit for The Xtra Factor?
