Kim Cattrall in frame for Britain’s Got Talent judge job - Daily TV round-up


Kim Cattrall is reportedly going head-to-head with Samantha Womack for a place on the judge's panel of 'Britain's Got Talent'.

The 'Sex and the City' star is said to be in the frame as the number of judges on the show is to be raised from three to four.

It's thought that both David Walliams and Amanda Holden are signed on, and with Cowell returning to the fold there will be one place going begging.

Former 'EastEnders' star Womack was previously on for the job, even flying out to LA to meet with Cowell.

But now Cattrall could nip in at the last minute, according to reports.

A source at the show told The Sun “we love Kim. She might be best known for her American TV shows but she was born in Liverpool and spent a lot of time here in Britain.”

“She gets our sensibilities in the way The Hoff never could,” they added. [The Sun]
