With her dark brown hair and shapely physique, Christine Bleakley is just the kind of woman to catch the attention of Simon Cowell.
But while the One Show host, 31, was widely tipped as a possible replacement for Holly Willoughby as the host The Xtra Factor, ITV sources insists she won’t be joining the show.
Frank Lampard’s girlfriend, who was pictured showing off her figure in a pair of tight-fitting skinny jeans yesterday, has previously said she is ‘very happy’ in her current role.
It will come as welcome news to ITV pin-up Caroline Flack, who is also said to be being considered for the role.
The Whole 19 Yards co-host Flack, 29, is in the running for the £100,000-a-series job hosting the ITV2 show which it returns in September.
Friends of Flack told The Sun she had met Cowell during a recent trip to Los Angeles and he was impressed with her presenting CV.
