Frankie Sandford is in talks to become an 'X Factor' judge.
The Saturdays singer is being lined up to replace Cheryl Cole - who is set to join Simon Cowell on the US version - on the panel of the ITV1 talent show as bosses think she will impress viewers with her opinions and good looks.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Frankie has all the right ingredients for an 'X Factor' judge - she looks great, she can hold her own and she's been there. The Saturdays have had to work hard so she knows what the wannabes are going through.
"Just like Cheryl, she is young and glamorous and someone the contestants can relate to."
The 22-year-old beauty - who is currently dating footballer Wayne Bridge - first shot to fame with S Club Juniors when she was 12 before joining The Saturdays so already has a lot of experience.
However, Frankie faces stiff competition from Mel B as the pregnant former Spice Girls singer recently hinted she has the job.
Mel - who currently lives in Los Angeles - said: "I think I might be coming over for quite some time at some point next year. Well, I'm not going by myself, am I? The whole family is going to move, I think."
She quickly added: "I don't think I was meant to say that though. Oh sorry, pregnant brain, maybe that was a secret."
