cbskatyperry4 Katy Perry In Talks For Television Show...In The UK?

[lastfm]Katy Perry[/lastfm] was a guest judge on “The X Factor” on ITV1, a UK television station, yesterday. Now, word comes from the Edinburgh Television Festival that the network is interested in adding Katy to its lineup permanently!

Perry is a top “target” for ITV2, the UK network that airs a great deal of American programming such as Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries.
