Piers Morgan has confirmed that Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole will appear on the US version of The X Factor, according to reports.

It has long been suggested that Simon Cowell would take his favourite UK judge Cheryl with him when he launched his US version of the talent show.

However, following Nicole’s successful guest stint on The X Factor, it was rumoured that she could take Cheryl’s place on the panel.

Meanwhile, former Britain’s Got Talent judge Morgan has reportedly announced that Cowell will offer both singers a position on the US X Factor when it starts in 2011.

Piers is quoted by the News of the World saying: “He’ll love a couple of feisty brunettes fighting over him.”

Meanwhile, Cheryl has allegedly set a date to appear on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

The Parachute singer has agreed to appear in a special episode of the show.

It will air after an X Factor semi-final on December 11, according to reports.

The Girls Aloud singer will talk about her divorce from footballer Ashley, her recent bout of malaria which landed her in intensive care, as well as her relationship with Derek Hough.
