Cheryl Cole is reportedly planning on becoming the 'new Simon Cowell', by launching her very own X Factor style reality show. According to the Daily Star Sunday, Chezza wants to launch a contest to find and mentor a new girl group in a new BBC One series.
The series will be similar to that of Popstars and Popstars: The Rivals, the show that made Cheryl famous back in 2002. The format sees solo auditionees try out and compete for a place in a manufactured band, with the top 5 contestants as voted for the public being chucked together to form the new group.
Cheryl apparently "believes her expertise as both a talent show contestant and judge will make it a sure-fire winner."
And according to the tabloid, former Strictly Come Dancing boss Sam Donnelly is set to produce the show for the BBC.
However it's that comes after it was reportedly yesterday Cheryl and Simon were 'friends again', with the music mogul said to be "desperate" to find the Geordie singer a new role in the UK version of The X Factor.
An insider said revealed: “If she teams up with the Beeb, ITV won’t be very happy."
Cheryl has also been tipped for a judging role on new BBC reality talent series The Voice, based on the Dutch series that stormed the states earlier this year, the show will launch early in 2012.
