The X Factor producers are considering replacing host Steve Jones or giving him a new co-host when the show's live broadcasts begin next week, the U.K.'s Heat magazine reported, according to the Daily Mail.

A potential new co-host would replace Nicole Scherzinger, who was originally set to co-host the show with Jones but ended up taking Cheryl Cole's spot on the judging panel when The X Factor creator and lead judge Simon Cowell decided to replace Cole after the competition's first two audition cities.

According to the Heat report, So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley, Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian and Giuliana & Bill star Giuliana Rancic are among the names the producers have been considering as possible female co-hosts.

Rancic, however, is likely no longer an option given her Monday announcement that she has breast cancer and will be undergoing surgery and radiation treatments over the next six weeks.

The X Factor's Top 16 acts will be revealed during Tuesday night's broadcast of the final stage of the competition's Judges' Homes Round. The live shows will then begin with a special 150-minute broadcast on Tuesday, October 25 at 8PM ET/PT.
