Stephen Mulhern has revealed that he wanted Kimberley Walsh to replace Cheryl Cole as a judge for The X Factor’s Boot Camp round.
The Britain’s Got More Talent host said that Walsh, who co-presented The 5 O’Clock Show with Mulhern last month, was better-suited to the role than current stand-in judge Nicole Scherzinger.
The 33-year-old told Metro: “Honestly I would have gone for Kimberley Walsh to replace Cheryl over Nicole for Boot Camp. She’s more like Cheryl. I don’t really know Nicole but I think Kimberley would have just been the perfect pick.
“I did The 5 O’Clock Show with her and I thought she was brilliant. I think she would have been ideal. It’s interesting that they’ve gone for Nicole. But we shall see how it turns out.”
I agree with Stephen, I don’t like Nicole at all and I don’t even know why she was chosen.
