ITN has highlights from the pre ‘X Factor’ finale press conference, where Simon Cowell talked about reports suggesting Robbie Williams might rejoin Take That. Simon said he didn’t think it’s a good idea. He also said he anticipates Dannii Minogue will return next season. “Gotta get the contracts sorted out,” he said. “But I would be surprised if there’s a different lineup.” Cowell also predicted finalist Eoghan Quigg, who he’s mentoring, will win the Saturday night finale.
Meanwhile, Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole talked about how being a judge on the hit show has changed her life. “I was given a fantastic opportunity by Simon to join the show. Couldn’t be happier that I have. And the icing on the cake of my whole ‘X Factor’ experience would be for Alexandra to win. It’s not about anything that’s changed in my life.”
