Chezza’s X Fac­tor shocker

She cuts last link to ‘pal’

Daily Star - - Front Page - By KATE NEL­SON kate.nel­son@dai­lystar.co.uk

FOR­MER judge Ch­eryl Tweedy has vowed never to re­turn to The X Fac­tor.

She can­not for­give show supremo Si­mon Cow­ell af­ter “go­ing through hell” when he pub­licly sacked her, pals say.

CH­ERYL Tweedy has sev­ered her fi­nal ties to The X Fac­tor as the lat­est twist in her feud with Si­mon Cow­ell.

The new mum has shut down her £2mil­lion com­pany CherCo Pro­duc­tions which han­dled her mas­sive earn­ings from the ITV tal­ent show.

Her move is be­ing seen as a snub to music mogul Cow­ell who show in­sid­ers claimed was “keen” to have her back.

Singer Ch­eryl, 34, is said to have never fully for­given Si­mon for ax­ing her from his US ver­sion of the se­ries.

Now she is plan­ning to “move on” and prove to her doubters she can be a global pop su­per­star in her own right.

Ch­eryl faced a hu­mil­i­at­ing public sack­ing in 2011 be­fore the US ver­sion even went on air.

She has told how she “went through hell” af­ter­wards.

An in­sider said: “Ch­eryl isn’t go­ing back on to the panel, even as a guest judge.

“She’s mov­ing for­ward and has no plans to re­turn.

“She had a great few years work­ing on The X Fac­tor – she won it twice – but she is look­ing ahead and the fo­cus next year will be all about her music.”

Cow­ell has said he would love to work with Ch­eryl again and claimed a re­cent fall-out in which she ig­nored his texts was “just our re­la­tion­ship”.

Ch­eryl is plan­ning a US pop re­turn and her One Di­rec­tion star lover Liam Payne hinted they could record to­gether.

Fans went into over­drive when Liam, 23 – the fa­ther of their baby son Bear – said re­cently: “There’s talk of maybe do­ing a col­lab­o­ra­tion, but I can’t tell you who it is yet.”
