London, (ANI): Cheryl Cole's alleged lover Derek Hough apparently
wants a role in reality show The X Factor but can't agree a deal.
Hunky dancer Derek has been in secret talks with Talkback
Thames, which produces the show, about a permanent role. Cole wants
him to take over from choreographer Brian Friedman, who is being
promoted to creative producer on Simon Cowell's new project, the US
version of the hit show.
"Derek wants to be creative director, which is the title Brian
Friedman had," the Daily Star quoted an insider as saying. "And he
has fixed himself up with hot shot LA agents Creative Artists to
negotiate a deal for him. But Talkback Thames has told him they
can't afford to pay him creative director money. They have offered
him a job as a choreographer and that's it. Cheryl thinks Derek is
massively talented and wants him to play a big part in the series,"
Cole has been close to Derek since her marriage to cheating
footballer Ashley Cole broke apart.
