Katy Perry To Fill Cheryl’s X Factor Boots?

Katy Perry, everyone’s favourite faux lesbian, appears to be a favourite amongst bookies to replace Cheryl Cole on the hit talent show X Factor.

Appearing on last year’s series as a guest judge, Katy Perry appears to have made her mark upon the show’s bosses and most importantly X Factor head honcho, Simon Cowell, with bookmakers William Hill making Katy a 7/2 favourite to join 2011’s panel of musical judges.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: “Katy Perry was very well liked when she appeared on last year’s show and the odds suggest that she is in pole position to either take over from a departing judge or become a fifth judge on the show”.

With Cowell and Cole apparently packing their bags and abandoning British screens for the big ole US of A version of X Factor, various other celebrities have been linked to the new judging panel for the 2011 edition of X Factor such as Gary Barlow, Sharon Osbourne, Geri Halliwell and Michael Buble.
