Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell Announce UK X Factor Return

Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole arrived at a press conference today at which they reportedly announced their return to the UK’s “X Factor.” It’s reported that Cheryl Cole agreed to a nearly $2.5 million one-year deal to return to the hit show. Reports go on to say that Cheryl and Simon have made up since their falling out three years ago after he fired her just weeks into her role as a judge on the US version of the show in 2011. Cole, who was previously a judge on the UK show from 2008 to 2010, reportedly feels like a different person since she last served as a judge on the show. Cowell will also be returning to the judges table this year. He was also a judge on the show from 2004 to 2010.

U.S. Welcomes Cheryl Cole

Reid as a judge on the Reality TV show. The Girls Aloud singer delighted American fans with her Barbarella bouffant, tangerine top, turquoise belt and bright purple pants.

Former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger and British TV personality Steve Jones were announced as the co-hosts of the upcoming FOX television show.

‘X Factor’ Judges Arrive To Auditions

“The X Factor” has finally hit the United States. Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul were reunited at the auditions, which took place at The Galen Center in Los Angeles, after several years together on “American Idol.” This reality competition differs from “Idol” in that it’s open to both solo artists and groups, there’s no upper age limit and the final contestants will be mentored by the judges.

Joining Cowell and Abdul at “The X Factor” auditions were fellow judges Cheryl Cole and music producer L.A. Reid. “Extra’s” Terri Seymour was also spotted at the tryouts looking quite thin.

Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole enjoyed a girls night out last night at Villa on the Hollywood club scene with band mates Nicola Roberts and Kimberly Walsh. The trio arrived into LA following a holiday in Thailand after leaving the UK after her marriage breakdown to her footballer husband Ashley Cole (she was not wearing her wedding ring). The girls have been Cheryl’s support system and they certainly caught the eyes of all of the American gents outside the nightclub. Cheryl was also looked after by a burly bodyguard who had his arm around her as they exited the club. Although the anguished star has been reportedly refusing to eat after suffering the public humiliation following Cole’s public affair, she looked stunning in a tight bright dress. Three different women have claimed they had sexual relations with Cole since his marriage to Cheryl in 2006.

Reports are circulating that heartbroken Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole has turned to Spice Girl and fellow WAG Victoria Beckham to help her through some marital problems with her soccer-star husband Ashley Cole.

The 24-year-old Cheryl has reportedly moved out of her home and is taking a break from her marriage and her career with Girls Aloud since hairdresser Aimee Walton claimed she was offered money for an abortion following a one-night stand with Ashley. And, since those claims surfaced, two more women have come forward to say they have also slept with Cole.

Victoria went through a similar ordeal when Rebecca Loos claimed she had an affair with her husband, David Beckham, in 2004. So, who better to ask for advice?

Cole and Beckham have had several phone conversations while Cheryl takes a break from her marriage. According to the reports, “Victoria was really upset when she heard what happened, and wanted Cheryl to know she was there for her….She stuck by her man and got through it, and she just wanted to tell Cheryl that she could get through it too. While the claims against David were never proved, Ashley might have a tougher time clearing his name after this one.”
