X Factor boss Simon Cowell has said that he welcomes former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole to join rival series The Voice. The new reality show, which is speculated to air in January 2012, is rumoured to be after both Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue for the programme.
Simon Cowell said: “Would she do ‘The Voice’? Yes, I would encourage her to do that and do it with ITV. I am not that precious that I don’t welcome competition. It is genuinely more interesting.
“I don’t wish her bad. Even if she was competing against me I wish her well.”
The show has become a huge hit in the US, where Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine are amongst the judges.
