Simon Cowell planning to create X Factor girl band to fill the hole left by 1D split

33

SIMON COWELL has a boyband-shaped vacancy in his roster after ONE DIRECTION went their separate ways last year.

And now he’s hoping to replicate their worldwide success with a brand new band — this time made up of gorgeous girls.

 Simon is placing his hopes on a six-piece girlband, which he made up from contestants who stood out throughout Boot Camp and the auditions

The mogul, above, has picked six individual stars from The X Factor to form a brand new girl group.

And it just so happens that most of them have modelling experience.

A source said: “Simon is placing his hopes on a six-piece girlband, which he made up from contestants who stood out throughout Boot Camp and the auditions.

“They all have incredible voices and look amazing together, given they all have a great fashion sense and can dance, too.

Simon thinks the band will appeal to both girls and boys and is hoping they will progress to the live shows.”

Show favourite Lydia Calvin — who is dating MICHELLE KEEGAN’s ex Brad Howard — will be joined in the group by Kelsey Gill, Charlie Cammish and Sky-Autumn Amber.

Lingerie model Ash Holme has also been taken out of the group she originally auditioned with, called NQ, and put in the new band.

Imogen Blue, who appeared in Channel 5 series One Night With My Ex, completes the line-up.

The band, which is yet to be named, are currently in Nice, France, for the judges’ houses part of the show.

I reckon they’ll all be hoping that having ex-GIRLS ALOUD member CHERYL as Simon’s guest mentor will work in their favour.
