Former X Factor judge has reportedly been approached to join Fox’s American Idol as a new judge.

Is there a talent competition that Cheryl Cole hasn’t been linked to by the press? The Geordie singer judge has been tipped for roles on Britain’s Got Talent, The Voice and returns to the UK and USA versions of the X Factor all of which – so far – have proven to be false. Surprisingly though she wasn’t tipped for the Strictly Come Dancing job – those tabloid journalists missed a trick there.

Now reports claim that producers of American Idol have approached Cole to see if she would be interested in joining the judging panel of the ratings titan. Cole was memorable dumped from the judging panel of the American X Factor after just a handful of days and was promptly replaced by Nicole Scherzinger.

According to several reports producers are after Cole to join Jennifer Lopez on the American Idol panel or replace her if she decides to quit – as reports suggest. A “source” told the New York Post “It will be interesting to see how Jennifer deals with another beautiful woman sitting alongside her”.
