Lily Allen to be the new Simon Cowell on 'X Factor'?

Friday March 4, 2011

She's known for saying exactly what she thinks.

And it seems this quality might be what Simon Cowell is looking for as he's reportedly asked Lily Allen to replace him as a judge on The X-Factor.

It seems the No Fear singer is unsure whether to accept, however.

A source told The Sun: "Lily was flattered to get Simon's call.

"It's a big job and an honour to be asked.

"But she's not convinced. She has tried to take a step back from the limelight over the last six months and doesn't want to be thrust right back into the madness of the showbiz pantomime that comes with the show."

The source added: "She doesn't need the money or the hassle at this stage in her life. Maybe in a few years' time when circumstances change she will be more receptive."

The 26-year-old recently suffered the devastating loss of her unborn child when she was six months pregnant.
