Cheryl Cole is hoping to get Khloe Kardashian on The X Factor 2014 panel.
The supposedly 'best pals' are wanting to work together on the UK show after Khloe previously appeared as a host on the American version.
Cheryl said earlier this week that she wanted a “strong woman” beside her on the judging line up this year, hitting back at reports claiming she was demanding to be the only female judge.
“There are people I’d love to join the panel. Definitely a strong woman,” the Fight For This Love hitmaker insisted. “I’m kind of hoping I don’t have to deal with three guys because otherwise I’ll have no hair — I’ll be pulling it out all the time!”
While Cheryl herself mentioned no names, heat magazine claim that the Girls Aloud star is trying to persuade Simon to give Khloe a shot.
"Cheryl knows she has Simon wrapped around her little finger and has told him to give Khloe another chance," a source told the magazine this week. "She thinks she'd be really witty and funny and is really popular in the UK.
"She says having the good fiend on the panel would be good for the show."
Meanwhile the pal went on to reveal that Khloe is looking to launch a bigger career here in the UK so being on The X Factor would be more than helpful.
"Khloe's told Cheryl that working int he UK is exactly what she needs," the source added. "She's been desperately trying to find an escape from LA and all the drama she's had there."
As it stands only Cheryl and Simon are confirmed for this year's series.
The X Factor UK auditions will begin with the open try outs next month before moving onto the judges’ auditions in the summer.
The X Factor will air on ITV in the autumn.
