Cheryl Cole Returning To U.K. X Factor!

| Filed under: Simon CowellCherylX FactorReality TV


Not a bad fall back, if we do say so ourselves!

Although Simon Cowell was unable to land Cheryl Cole a judging position on the American version of The X Factor, he's reportedly softened the blow by signing a new contract for her position on the UK edition of the series - as well as a $1.38 million pay raise, making her compensation now around $2.77 million!

A source close to production explains:

"Cheryl is thrilled about the new deal. She thought her days on the UK X Factor were behind her but the money is too good to refuse. This is Simon's way of making it up to Cheryl for not landing her the US X Factor gig. He's handing her a €2million dream pay day. She was convinced Simon had pulled all the strings to get her on the judging panel but it's been a disaster. Now Cheryl will make twice the money she was on last year. Simon has told her he's going to look after her and he has a lot of surprises in store for this year's show. He's going to shake things up dramatically and make some big changes. He wants the new format to be much edgier and Cheryl will play a major role in that. She's going to be returning with a bang and with Simon no longer appearing on the show he's banking on Cheryl to stir things up."

Wowza! That's way more than fair if you ask us!

She still gets to keep her job, and makes double what she did before - and with a potentially expanded role!

We would LOVE to see our Chezza break into the US mainstream, but we think that ultimately this will be for the best! We didn't think that the UK X Factor viewers wanted to have to say good-bye to her, anyway!

What do U think?? Are U excited Chezza is coming back to UK's X Factor??

    UK viewers DON'T want her back actually Perez. Thought we'd seen the back of her. Oh well, X-Factor isn't worth watching as you'll soon find out.

  2. 2

    Don't really care much for her being on the show. But if Simon does go i'll be pissed off. It won't be the same withoit him

  3. 3

    i really really wanted chertyl to get USA x factor but im pleased shes staying in the uk :) she is such massive role model to me so i would really miss not watching her every saturday night

    Can't she just die along side Kim Kardashian?

    Lucky girl. It seems that Simon satellites do very well. She's not the most talented in the bunch, but she's pretty and has done a purportedly nice enough job at UK x-factor that she's landed the gig.

    DAMN IT!!!!! I'll go get my gun.

    Re: @v@ – Gamugate, the I'm not voting saga. The woeful Katie and Cher? Whom she subsequently dropped like hot potatoes. Those godawful outfifts plus she lost to Danni! Hardly a nice enough job.

  8. 8

    well that's predictable.

    Re: Allesandra Casillas – I don't like her either but telling her to die, that's a bit OTT, doncha think?

    Re: Mrs Cloudatlas – I hear you, but Simon does the hiring. o.O

  11. 11

    Re: zmaxinez – I agree, but Dannii makes the show worth watching she's the only quality judge.

  12. 12

    no we do not want her judging again. nor do we want her singing. as a nation, we would generally prefer it if her and katie "jordan" price would just bugger off forever. if anyone counts either of those women as their "role models" then you can kindly bugger off with them. we don't need people like you in our country, thank you.

    YAY! No Shityl Cole over here. :D

    perez-cherly is a very pretty handworking girl with a little musical talent. she has ganied infamy here through her personal life not singing/ music. You already have J LO to fill this role!

    I heard a rumour the Libyan X-Factor needed a new judge Cheryl….

  17. Merab says – reply to this


    she´s pretty..but I don´t care about her…

    I heard her "singing" live in London once…boring as f… gosh
    the only song that "saved" that night was some up-tempo …
    but she is not even a performer…she doesn´t know how to keep the audience interested or how to really perform ..
    And then she judges and gives advice…mmm…then why can´t she use her "knowledge" herself on stage ?

  18. 18

    She can't sing, she can't judge and she is NOT a good role model- I mean she beat up someone and stayed with a footballer that cheated on her- that really sends out the right message doesn't it? I don't know why people love her so much? Ok, she might be pretty, (when caked in makeup) but I think there are far more stunning female celebrities around that just make her look normal! I just wished she'd go away!

    Re: jazzinkate – cudnt agree with you more!!! WHY IS SHE ON THE SHOW WEN SHE NEVER GIVES A VALID POINT…. Its always "Your cute" blah blah blah….she cant sing…auto que is her best friend…she wud be nower without daddy cowell…nadine coyle out of girls aloud was always the talented one…Cheryl HAS NO TALENT!!! the spa!

  20. 20

    Everything about her is FAKE (including her teeth)…she has no actual talent so i dont see why shes a judge…shes useless at it….shes not one to give out critisim when she cant actually sing herself…she picks her "final 3" by their looks nd sob story… She wouldnt be anywer if she hadnt have batted her eyelids and daddy cowell…shes not a self made name….She sung on the xfactor a few times and MIMED…how is that setting an example….she only has a fart of a talent and is a waste of space

    Re: mikeyireland – Hey fellow irish buddy! Ye i agree about Dannii…she is the most valuable and honest judge…shes the only one who really does give VALID constructive critism… shes put down so much and doesnt deserve it. DANNII SHOULD BE A JUDGE ON X FACTOR USA…but i would miss her on the UK version!

  22. 22

    SO America said no, and the country, fans, TV Network and audience she ditched to pursue US fame are suddenly good enough again??? LOL ridiculous. Guys if you have any pride you will switch this user off!

  23. 23

    No!No!NOOO! Can't stand this woman, she ruined X Factor with her lip syncing!

    She really has no talent. The only way she could land a gig is through other people like Simon or other contacts. If it wasnt cause of her relationship with Ashley no one would know who she is, even in the UK..She's also been fucking Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas to bosst her career, which she had been fucking even when she was still married to Ashley..And recenty she also fucking 50 cent in hopes that he also help her boost her career. She is nothing but a whore and an opportunist.

    WHY DO PEOPLE WATCH THESE SHOWS? Why can't you see that these randoms get paid millions of dollars for telling someone if they like him or not! And it's because millions of people sit in front of TV every week, instead of doing something useful. I can't believe people have the guts to go and criticize the economy, governments, education and blame the world for the fact they're not earning enough money, while they spend their after hours on the couch staring into the screen…

    you're a fuckn asshole but even though you are an asshole you do have some influence. if you love cheryl so much you should have been praising her as a potential judge on US XFactor. you certainly didn't help her chances by saying that she's a "nobody" in the US. IDIOT!!!

  28. 28

    Frankly her performance as a judge in the last series was abysmal and she got a lot of criticism from the public here in the UK. We don't want her back, we thought we had offloaded her to the poor unsuspecting Americans, what a bummer! An admittedly pretty doll with no talent and no real ability or credentials as a judge of music, NOT looking forward to the next series at all now :o (

  29. 29

    Good! Let her stay there!
