Gordon in the morning: Whoever would have guessed

Gordon's read something astonishing in Heat (no, really, he's copying stuff out of Heat):

Jeff [Haddad], who negotiated Nicole [Scherzinger]'s X Factor deal, said: "Simon Cowell always wanted her as a judge. There was never a question that she wouldn't get it.

"I had long discussions with Simon about her judging the US show and she was always a front-runner for that job.

"Cheryl's name never came into it. Cheryl was just being used as a cog in the wheel to cause hype and publicise the show. Nicole was never supposed to be a host.
Goodness, all a stunt? Doesn't that just shake your faith in the whole Cowell franchise.

Obviously, there's a denial:
An X Factor spokesperson dismissed the claims as "complete and utter rubbish".
Don't worry, everyone: in a couple of weeks there'll be a claim from Haddad that he was having a mental health episode.

Still, interesting to see Gordon run a piece knocking the Cowell machine. Biting the hand that feeds him exclusives.

You could only say Gordon was biting the hand that feeds him if he ran a feature saying that his local newsagent was a bit of an idiot.

Practically everything he 'writes' is cribbed from Q, Heat or (more likely) TMZ

Gordon - Reading the features in magazines. Because you can't.
