An Australian Version Of The X-Factor Likely To Premier In 2011
It would appear Australian TV channels will be putting more money into Simon Cowell’s pocket with Channel Nine and Seven both vying for the rights of The X Factor.
Executives from both channels met with Simon Cowell to discuss the show an article in the Daily Telegraph reveals.
The article said:
“Seven made a very aggressive play for it and Channel 9 was very interested but were more conscious of the cheque they would have to write – but one way or another, expect it to be on air around February next year.”
X Factor aired here on Channel 10 in 2005, but was a ratings dog.
Don’t expect Kate Cebrano or Mark Holden to make a reappearance on the show. I suspect either Channel will make a play for Danni Minogue to be a judge/mentor.
