Sources are claiming that the producers of the X Factor are getting increasingly concerned that Cheryl Cole has yet to sign her new contract for the show.
And they are offering her over $1.4 million!
What's the hold up, girl?!?!
Some are suggesting that Cheryl's biggest hang-up about returning is the replacement for pregnant pal Dannii Minogue. Allegedly, Cheryl wants another "girly girl" to giggle with, but she doesn't want anyone too young that will "upstage" her fashion wise and she doesn't want anyone to loud and rowdy. (Former Spice Girl Mel B was being considered, which allegedly "frightened" her.)
We hear that there will be an emergency showdown meeting of all the X Factor judges as early as next week at Simon Cowell's London digs to work this all out.
C'mon, Chery! Don't disappoint the fans! They still want you around!
