Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole is getting nervous about potential judging role
The Girls Aloud star is yet to be confirmed as a judge, but she’s already thought to be fretting over how she’ll be received by American viewers.
‘Things are practically in place for Cheryl to join the judging panel of US X Factor,’ says a source.
‘But now the reality of it is beginning to sink in. She is worried [the US public] won’t warm to her.
‘Everything is riding on her appearance on the show because, if she’s a hit with fans, her solo career will be a guaranteed success.’
Cheryl‘s good friend Simon Cowell, 51, has been working hard to persuade Fox TV bosses that she’s right for the job.
‘He’s told her a contract could be signed next week if everything goes to plan,’ the source tells the Daily Star.
‘Despite telling people she feels relaxed and calm, behind closed doors she’s a nervous wreck.’
