Kate Thornton faces 'X Factor' axe?

By
Kate Thornton is reportedly facing the axe as X Factor host.

The Sun claim that producers of the hit ITV show want a new presenter for the next series and have compiled a list of potential replacements including Fearne Cotton and Dermot O'Leary.

An insider told the tabloid: "Kate is a lovely girl but the feeling is they want to send the fourth series show into the stratosphere... Bosses are constantly looking for ways to revamp the format. Replacing Kate is one of the options for the next series."

A spokesman for the X-Factor refused to confirm Thornton's long term fate: "Her talent in running a major live studio show is unprecedented and we look forward to continuing to work with her."
