Simon Cowell - Cheryl Cole To Front Pop Show For Cowell

Simon Cowell is lining up Cheryl Cole to host a new pop show.

The 52-year-old music mogul - who sensationally axed the Girls Aloud singer from the US 'X Factor' last year - is reportedly keen for the brunette beauty to front a brand new music programme after she launches her solo comeback in March.

An insider said: "He's talking about bringing back a classic chart show and he thinks that because Cheryl is slap bang in the middle of the pop market, she'd be a great host.

"When Simon gets back to London later this month he's hoping they will hammer out a deal. Whatever happens, there won't be a dull moment."

However, after seeing the harsh side of Simon when she was sacked from the 'X Factor' panel, Cheryl has reportedly vowed to never "make the same mistake" again and in order to get back in her good books, the 'Britain's Got Talent' boss plans to tempt the singer with a "blank cheque".

The source told Reveal magazine: "The horrible fall-out between the two of them was probably the best thing that could have happened to Cheryl. It forced her to stand up for herself and see Simon for the hard-nosed businessman he is.

"That was a harsh lesson, but she won't make the same mistake twice. Cheryl knows she's in the driving seat.

"So now the plan is to put together a new format for Cheryl, and Simon plans to wave a blank cheque in front of her to make sure she won't be able to turn him down."

It was recently claimed that Cheryl is being lined up to front a late-night talk show for British station Channel 4 featuring celebrity guests and fashion news.

A source said: "They know she'll be a massive ratings winner and is the perfect fit to pull in amazing guests."
