Lily Allen has denied reports that she will be judging on this year’s X factor series.
Sources had claimed that the ‘The Fear’ singer would be joining Geri Hallwell, Natalie Imbruglia and Katy Perry as a stand in for pregnant Dannii Minogue in the nationwide auditions. Many had wondered how this would work, as permanent judge Cheryl Cole and Lily have often been openly hostile towards each other.
Allen told the Sunday Mirror: “I won’t be a judge on X Factor. That’s so not the sort of thing I’d do.
“But I wouldn’t have a problem sitting next to Cheryl. There’s no feud.
“I have nothing bad to say about her. Her song ‘Parachute’ is genius and it’s on my iPod.”
Spice Girl Geri and Torn singer Natalie have already carried out their judging duties in Glasgow and Birmingham respectively. Pixie Lott and Katy Perry will take their seats later this month.
