Cheryl Cole

Simon Cowell has joked that he is planning to strap X Factor judge Cheryl Cole to a rocket for his new gameshow 'Red or Black'! Speaking at the press launch for the show yesterday, while Cowell was just teasing Cheryl, he was serious about having wacky games saying: "Somebody [will be] strapped to a rocket."

The music mogul revealed a number of famous celebrities would be taking part in the programme with silly and funny games which the contestants would bet on the outcome of.

Joking about Cheryl, Simon said: "She could be strapped to a rocket with me on this show. You think I'm kidding... I am thinking about strapping Cheryl to a rocket on the show. She doesn't know yet. I'm just going to tell her it's a big firework night."

But Cowell added: "There is a big celebrity component in [the show], without giving too much away."

He added: "Somebody strapped to a rocket, one of them is black, one of them is red. That's all you need to know."
