DM London - Glamorous former Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts could be poised to become a judge on Britain’s Got Talent next year.

The 29-year-old, right, has already met executives to discuss taking a seat on the panel of the ITV show, which hits our screens each June.

‘Nicola was excited to get a call asking her to come in for a chat,’ said a source close to the star.

‘She’s had a few meetings since and although nothing has yet been signed, she’s considering her options.’

A spokesman for BGT creator Simon Cowell confirmed he was ‘absolutely’ returning to the series in 2015, so Nicola’s arrival could spell danger for one of the current judges – Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.

Asked about the talks, a BGT spokesman was coy, saying: ‘Nicola has not yet met the top level producers.’ The Queen has always loved her pet corgis and now it seems the rest of us are catching on. Sales of cuddly toy corgis, above, at the Royal Family’s Christmas base Sandringham in Norfolk have gone through the roof.

The estate website boasts that the Visitor Centre shops and restaurants have been extremely busy over the festive season, ‘with gift shop staff noticing a distinct increase in online and mail order sales, with Sandringham corgis and teddy bears being posted to all parts of the UK and beyond’. Well, they do look adorable.
