There have been plenty of rumours recently about the judging panel on the UK version of The X Factor, with many claiming that Tulisa Contostavlos will be replaced on the show. Now, it has been suggested that Simon Cowell is going to do whatever it takes to get Cheryl Cole back on the judging panel, in a bid to boost the show ratings.
The Sun quotes and insider as saying, “He's desperate to get Cheryl back on X Factor UK because it's lost its way. The money on the table would be a fortune - at least double what she got last time. She could have what she wanted.”
They added, “He doesn't want to see 'X Factor' going down the way it is and he thinks Cheryl is the next best thing to him. Simon wants to get rid of Tulisa so this meeting will be part and parcel of that.”
The X Factor has seen their viewing figures drop by around two million and they are looking at a number of ways to get those viewers back. This year’s X Factor is currently at the semi final stage, which will air on ITV1 this Saturday, with the results show airing on the Sunday, also on ITV1.
