Girls Aloud babe Cheryl Cole is being lined up as the host of a new TV dating show. The 25-year-old beauty is the favourite to follow in the footsteps of Cilla Black by presenting a brand new series of the hit British matchmaking show, Blind Date.
A source for Cheryl Cole said: “Cheryl would be an ideal host – she’s young and sassy and both men and women love her. Her own love life’s been a bit up and down, but hopefully she can play cupid for the shows contestants.“
Chery Cole, who is currently married to British footballer, Ashley Cole has seen her fame rise dramatically after she successfully joined The X Factor in the UK last year, and since appearing on the show, she has been inundated with offers, both in England and in America.
Last month we revealed that Cheryl Cole has signed a £2.2 million pound ‘golden handcuffs’ deal which basically means ITV own her exclusively. Current reports claim ITV are now coming up with potential TV shows which Cheryl could host.
Her fellow X Factor judge Simon Cowell is keen to help the Girls Aloud singer achieve worldwide fame. He previously has said: “I would say she’s a star, and she’ll work as well in America as she does here. She’s definitely got a shot.“
US publicist Howard Bragman is confident Cheryl Cole will be a Stateside success if she has Simon Cowell’s support. He said: “Simon is one of the biggest star-makers of his generation, and if you’ve got him in your corner, you are in very good standing. If she wants to be a solo singer, and Simon gave her a guest slot on his show ‘American Idol’, she’ll have 30 million people immediately familiar with her music. Simon Cowell’s the best fan club you can have.“
