Christine Bleakley is said to be replacing The X Factor USA host, Steve Jones. This is not good news, people. We like Steve. We’ve been on the Steve Jones bandwagon ever since his fine self graced the stage and basically told Paula Abdul to STFU.
It’s been already rumored that Steve was fired from the show after hosting only one season, but he has responded to the reports, saying that he would like to come back for season two.
Simon Cowell has reportedly already sought out Steve’s replacement and found it in former Daybreak host Christine Bleakley. She’s in the process of considering a move to the U.S. for the show.
A source revealed, “She gets on very well with Simon and he’s always maintained at some point they will work together. After Dancing On Ice is done and dusted by the spring, there’s nothing keeping her in the U.K. if she wanted to move abroad. The Americans love an Irish presenter and Christine has potential to work very well in the U.S.”
Listen up, Simon. Keep Steve. You want the female audience in the States, don’t you? Do we have to start a petition?
