Chezza’s got X Factor back
BRAVE Cheryl Cole will return to The X Factor for the live shows — standing in for one of the judges.
The 28-year-old Girls Aloud singer left the talent show earlier this year for The X Factor USA — but was dropped when fans couldn’t understand her Geordie accent.
An insider said: “It’s a very closely-guarded secret. Some people who work on the show don’t even know about this yet.
“But she’s in talks to come back as a guest panellist on the live shows.
“And while nothing’s been signed or set in stone, everyone involved knows it’s going to be the most EXPLOSIVE thing the show’s ever seen.”
N-Dubz singer Tulisa Contostavlos, 24, says she would step aside if Cheryl was to return.
She said: “It was her role and she should come first. I’ve been doing it for a period of time and I have a right to say, ‘Hang on, this is my job,’ but she’d had it for years.”
