Simon Cowell has given the strongest hint yet that Katie Price will be one of the judges on this years version of the X Factor.
With Cheryl and Simon due to work on the US version, two new places on the panel have opened up and Simon thinks Katie Price, aka Jordan, could be just the ticket.
“Do I want Jordan as a judge on The X Factor panel?” asks Simon Cowell, “Yeah, that could work. Why not? I like her as a person. In fact I’d even go as far as to say she’s my woman of the decade.”
Simon’s best mate Sinitta also chipped in in Price’s favour saying, “Having Jordan on the panel would make interesting viewing, so I can definitely see it working. She can do anything she puts her mind to. She’s got the personality that would fit the role perfectly. Simon really likes her as well. There’s no denying they get along.”
X Factor bosses know the move would guarantee good viewing figures as Jordan is such a love/hate figure in the UK. Even fans who don’t like her would tune in to see just how bad she is.
With Welsh ladies man Steve Jones tipped to host the US X Factor, Dermot O’Leary will continue here in the UK leaving just Connie Huq’s role up for debate.
Who do you think will be on the judging panel come next autumn? Let us know your thoughts below.
