That’s right: Cowell’s negotiating with Cheryl Cole to get her back on The X Factor. Nicole Scherzinger can breathe a sigh of relief, though, as Cowell wants to return Cole to her ancestral home in the U.K.
So why would Cowell sack Cole in the U.S. only to beg her to return in the U.K.? Well, as you might be able to guess, it’s all about the ratings — The X Factor U.K.’s not doing so hot, and Cowell thinks that Cole’s incredible popularity (she mentored two winning contestants in a row) will get things back on track. In other words, Cowell “does feel that the nation is missing Cheryl.”
But what about this nation, dear readers? Are you missing Cheryl, too, or is Nicole Scherzinger doing a good enough job to make you forget the past?
