Cheryl Cole has FINALLY put an end to rumours about her returning to X Factor… she isn’t.
After months of speculation that Cheryl Cole will return to The X Factor next year in a desperate attempt to salvage the ailing talent show, her spokesperson has declared it’s never gonna happen.
In a clearly worded statement, her publicist said: “Cheryl left the UK X Factor two years ago and has no plans to return.”
Simon Cowell has been said to be wooing the Newcastle-born star in a bid to entice her back to the judging panel when the show returns to ITV in 2013. The Syco music boss is said to be worried that this year’s poor ratings hint that the show is losing its edge, and wants next year’s series – the tenth – to be a return to form.
