Cowell is apparently papping himself at the thought of losing his one-time protege to BBC after rumours abounded that the geordie lass would sign up for rival reality-talent show, The Voice.
“There’s no way she will do Britain’s Got Talent. She thinks it’s all a massive joke,” one of her friends told The Sun. “Why on earth would she do that show when she turned down the X Factor?”
ITV are currently working hard behind the scenes to replace McIntyre – commonly seen as one of the few bright spots of a disappointing series – and David Hasselhoff, who was ditched for being too American.
The chatty mate of Cheryl’s also explained that she still isn’t speaking to Cowell after he ruined her chances of breaking America.
