ITV Secure X-Factor & Britian’s Got Talent for their viewers while Cheryl gets to four ciggarettes a day!


I hope the title caught your attention! And if it has I think I should start with why you clicked in the first place!

Sources claim that Cheryl Cole is trying to quit smoking.

The X Factor judge revealed that she has been trying to cut down with a view to stopping altogether.

The 27 year-old told Piers Morgan in a yet-to-be-screened interview: “I’ve managed to get myself down to four cigarettes a day. It’s my one vice, but I want to stop smoking completely.”

Yes! The majority of the world did not think she was a smoker, but hopefully her night with Piers Morgan will be on sooner than confirmed for (which was after the X-Factor semi finals). Very teary I heard…

FYI- Cheryl wil be appearing on Piers Morgan October 23 at 10pm on ITV1.

So back to ITV and their amazing new deal! Read on for details…

ITV has agreed a new three-year deal to keep hit shows The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent on its channels.

The arrangement extends ITV’s nine-year relationship with music mogul Simon Cowell until 2013.

Britain’s Got Talent will return to ITV1 next spring and The X Factor in autumn 2011. ITV2 will continue to broadcast The Xtra Factor and Britain’s Got More Talent.

As part of the renewed collaboration with Syco Entertainment and FremantleMedia, the broadcaster said it had also secured exclusive UK broadcast rights to the American version of The X Factor and America’s Got Talent for ITV2.

Cowell said: “I am thrilled this deal has been concluded with ITV to enable our relationship to continue to develop. I am committed to making sure both shows get bigger and better every year.

“I have a lot to thank ITV for; they have been key in making The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent the UK’s biggest television shows.”

Peter Fincham, ITV Director of Television, added: “The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent are the shows that have helped define the last decade of television in the UK and have become more than just a talking point: they are a national obsession, and I’m delighted that our viewers can continue to enjoy them on ITV over the next three years.”

It is exciting to know, but do they think this is realistic? Will the judges move to the US, or go back and forth to make this work? In order for all 4 shows to work both in the UK and US is going to be a lot of hard work.

Do you think they could possibly pull this off? Comments please! xx
