Paula Abdul ‘reuniting with Simon Cowell for X Factor: All Stars’

Eighties pop favourite Paula Abdul will take a seat alongside Simon Cowell and Louise Walsh on one of the new X Factor: All Stars series, it has been claimed.

According to The Sun, Si, 59, is reported to have turned to his former judging colleague on the US X Factor because Nicole Sherzinger – already announced for X Factor: Celebrity – is said to be tied up.

The tabloid quotes an unnamed TV insider as indicating 57-year-old Paula and Simon have kept in touch since working together – and Paula is part of his production company’s “family”.

“Paula and Simon have great on-screen chemistry and their banter is funny and entertaining,” the anonymous source is reported to have said.

They continued: “Simon feels comfortable sitting next to her and knows they’ll have a laugh and wind each other up, which will make for electric and entertaining viewing.

“Simon has handed her a lucrative contract to ensure she’s happy and it’s worth her while financially.”

They’ll have a laugh and wind each other up.

ED! has approached a representative for X Factor for comment.

X Factor: All Stars is one of two new shows – alongside X Factor: Celebrity – set to replace ITV’s flagship singing competition this autumn.

The line up of famous faces taking part includes The Chase’s Jenny Ryan, Love Island’s Wes Nelson and Vinnie Jones.
