Just don’t tell Simon...
According to The Sun, Gazza Bazza picked Chezza to help him mentor at the judges’ houses, but seeing that Cheryl and Simon haven’t been on great terms since he booted her off The X Factor USA he kept it all a massive secret.
“Only Gary’s intimate inner circle know. He hasn’t even discussed it with Simon or ITV bosses. It’s been seriously top secret stuff,” a source revealed.
“They’re all under the impression it’s going to be Robbie. No one even noticed the dates for the recording clashed with Robbie’s new solo tour.”
Apparently Gary and Cheryl came up with the plan over a drink after performing together at the Queen’s jubilee.
The source added: “She loved the mischief of it.”
If Cheryl doesn’t make her entrance Sinitta style wearing nothing but bay leaves and Jimmy Choos, we’ll never speak to her again.
