First she was joining, then she wasn’t joining, then she did join and now Cheryl Cole has decided to quit as a judge on The X Factor USA. This has caused people to speculate that the Geordie singer will make a return to the UK version of The X Factor but nothing has yet been confirmed.
Cheryl’s decision to quit comes as she cannot handle the intense home sickness that she has been feeling. A source for The X Factor said, "It hasn't worked out. She's homesick and wants to return to the UK. She's had enough. Whether she ends up back on UK X Factor is open to speculation."
Cole’s replacement has apparently already been confirmed as, former Pussycat Doll and future Mrs Lewis Hamilton, Nicole Sherzinger. Nicole has been co hosting the show with British presenter Steve Jones, who will now become the shows sole presenter. The X Factor USA begins in the US in September.
