She's worth every cent!
With speculation that Simon Cowell will focus his energy on the US version and will most likely not return to the UK series, producers are hoping to lure Chezza into staying on their show.
If she does agree to come back, the pay raise would make her the highest paid woman on UK television.
A source says:
"Cheryl is being tempted with a bigger salary and if she takes it then it won't look like she's failed in the US. ITV are in turmoil about the UK version as everything is still up in the air.
They know by keeping Cheryl half of their problems will be solved. She's still the biggest advertising draw. But, of course, if she does get the US job she'll take it like a shot."
We say, give her a chance! We want Chezza's American debut to happen ASAP!
