The producers of the upcoming US version of The X Factor have heaped praise on Cheryl Cole, increasing speculation that she may get the coveted judging role.

Peter Rice, the head of entertainment on the Fox network, said at a recent industry seminar in California: 'If Cheryl was to be on the show, I think she's proved she's a terrific judge. She has wonderful chemistry with Simon.'

Chatting about which personalities will be in line for the judging spots on the US version of The X Factor, Rice commented:  'There's great speculation. I think Simon is still meeting and trying to find the right mixture. It'll be four judges as it is in England - it's two men, two women, one of which will be Simon.'
