Chezza’s got X Fac­tor back

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
