Cheryl to ditch X Factor return for brand new BBC entertainment show?

The Sun's source said: "Cheryl's always been associated with ITV".

However now it looks like she may not be coming back to the show and more surprisingly she is also moving over to BBC, according to The Sun.

There have been rumours that Cheryl joining The Greatest Dancer is a "snub to X Factor" but given it's been created by X Factor boss Simon's company, that doesn't seem likely!

She started her career on ITV's Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 as one of the members of Girls Aloud. "Moving to the BBC is a huge deal for her. But everyone is hoping it'll get the green light".

The 34-year-old (you feeling old, or what?) has instead signed up to new BBC prime time show, The Greatest Dancer, serving as a "Dance Captain", which seems like it's pretty similar to the "mentor" role on X Factor.

In the practice run, Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo hoted the show, while Glee star Matthew Morrison and Strictly professional Oti Mabuse - which is planned for Saturday nights.

The insider added that Cheryl will be "the star of the show" and everyone involved reckons it will be a huge success. "And Matthew and Oti are trained dancers so are flawless choices alongside Cheryl as 'dance captains" or mentors'. Tuesday was the pilot filming but bosses and Simon have pulled together a strong line-up.

'But as yet, the conversations taking place have been unofficial, because we can't begin official talks with anyone until the show's schedule is agreed.
