Nicole steps in for Cheryl Cole

Jul 19, 10 Nicole steps in for Cheryl Cole


It looks like poor Malaria stricken Cheryl has to give up her spot to another beautiful star during the next stage of The X factor. It has been reported that Nicole Scherzinger is to stand instead of Cheryl.

The Girls Aloud star was diagnosed with the mosquito-borne illness after collapsing at a photoshoot earlier this month.

She is now resting at her mansion in Surrey, England after leaving the private clinic where she was receiving treatment, but Cole is still too ill to resume her judging duties with Simon Cowell and the rest of the crew.

Scherzinger impressed the high trouser wearing music mogul while she was a guest panellist earlier this month in Manchester, England, replacing the mini pregnant singer Danni Minogue.

And now the When I Grow Up hitmaker has been drafted in to take over from Cole during the ‘Boot Camp’ auditions at London’s Wembley Arena reports Britain’s The Sun.

A TV source tells the publication, “There was no way Cheryl was going to be able to do Boot Camp, despite being on the mend. Nicole was great in Manchester and Simon really likes her. She knows Wembley will be a tougher gig, but she’s proved she’s feisty and very entertaining. Just what the crowd needs!
