X Factor And Strictly Come Dancing Judges To Swap Places?

by | 04 April 2008

Fearsome reality show judges SIMON COWELL and BRUNO TONIOLI are considering trading jobs for charity.

The pair met while filming their respective US TV shows, AMERICAN IDOL and DANCING WITH THE STARS, and have suggested guest starring on the UK versions of the shows, X FACTOR and STRICTLY COME DANCING, reports the Sun

Speaking to the newspaper's TV Biz supplement, Bruno said: "We like a bit of a giggle - there is no competition between us. Simon has a lot of ideas for new TV shows and we were discussing swapping jobs – I'll do X Factor and he'll do Strictly.

"It would be for charity, perhaps Children In Need."

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Simon has splashed out £2.5 million on an LA home for his protegee LEONA LEWIS.

If the reports are correct then this would be the second generous gift Simon has given in the past few weeks.

He recently paid off an American family' mortgage after meeting their young daughter, who suffers from cancer on the OPRAH WINFREY SHOW.
