Khloé Kardashian is reportedly in the running to appear on a major TV show.
The reality TV star famously presented on the US version of The X Factor for one season and it’s now been claimed she could be making the move to the UK series.
Singer Cheryl Cole confirmed she is returning to the judging panel this week, having left in 2010. She starred on the US version briefly before being replaced by Nicole Scherzinger, going on to sue – and win – for loss of earnings. Cheryl and Khloé have struck up a friendship and the British singer is apparently backing the US star for a role on the program.
“Cheryl knows she has Simon wrapped around her little finger and has told him to give Khloé another chance – she think she’d be really witty and funny and is really popular in the UK. She says having a good friend on the panel she can laugh with would be good for the show,” an insider told British magazine Heat.
It seems Cheryl wants Khloé to help judge the talent, rather than take on presenting duties this time.
The two women have been open about their burgeoning friendship, both taking to social media to gush about each other.
As well as The X Factor, they are thought to have bonded over their love lives. Both have endured public marriage breakdowns, with Cheryl divorcing soccer star Ashley Cole after he was allegedly unfaithful and Khloé ditching basketball star Lamar Odom following drug and affair claims.
“They really bonded when they met at Kanye’s concert, which was when Khloé was splitting with Lamar – she said Cheryl was the first person that didn’t totally patronize her, knowing what she’s gone through,” the source explained.
“Khloé’s told Cheryl that working in the UK is exactly what she needs. She’s been desperately trying to find an escape from LA and all the drama she’s had there.”
