Paula Abdul ‘receiving Botox treatment in preparation for the X Factor’
Former American Idol judge Paula Abdul has reportedly received regular Botox treatment in a bid to improve her appearance for her stint on the US X Factor.
According to Now Magazine, the 48-year-old has adopted a strict beauty regime to ensure she looks her best on the judging panel.
With Nicole Scherzinger announced as Cheryl Cole's replacement on the programme, rumours are circulating that Abdul feels extra pressure to look her best.
A source told the magazine: "Paula has the best beauty team money can buy.
"She loves to hog the camera and she's tough to work with."
The insider claims the former chart topper has also been taking part in rigorous workouts and dance sessions every day in order to maintain her youthful figure.
Abdul has reportedly received anti-wrinkle Botox injections and derma fillers, as well as weekly oxygen facials to give her a glowing complexion.
Controversy has surrounded the set of the America X Factor from the offset, with British judge Cheryl Cole recently axed due to reports audiences were unable to understand her Newcastle accent.
