Cheryl Cole

Gone From 'X Factor'

FOREVER!!!

6/6/2011 9:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cheryl Cole is officially gone from "X-Factor" -- this, after Fox and Fremantle tried to resuscitate her deal.

As TMZ reported, FOX and Fremantle had fired Cole as a judge on the show because she lacked chemistry with the other judges, but Fremantle and Fox had a change of heart after figuring out how much money they would eat by paying Cheryl her fee -- so they tried getting her back.

The overture didn't work, so Nicole Scherzinger -- who was originally picked as the host -- will now take Cheryl's place as a judge. Nicole's role was in limbo while Fox and Fremantle were trying to get Cheryl back as a judge.

The new host is Steve Jones, a former model and UK TV personality.

Sounds like a mess.

I don't see the mess here TMZ. She's getting paid for doing nothing.

Nicole Whatsit is hardly much of an improvement. Surely they good have got someone with a little more pull than her. Lame. God I hope this show tanks.

Shouldn't Fox have thought of the financial consequences before they sent her packing? Maybe the success of The Voice has everyone at X Factor running scared.

She can take a long "PAID" vacation!
Fox should've read the fine print before firing her!

Looks like Nicole Scherzinger will have to carry the "Hotness" torch alone on the X-factor.

Cheryl is a talentless person who can;t even sing live and she has become a known person in UK thanks to Simom Cowell. She was trying to break in to USA without any solid talent and was acting as a Diva amongst proven talents like Paula Abdul, that is why she was shown the door, which was the right thing to do, that accent story was just an excuse. Nicole is a really talented person who can really sing and dance and she is a worthy judge. Aparently now Cheryl Cole is trying to milk the situation and asking for more millions for being sacked. what the world has come to? Nobodys get money, and fame too.

I admit not knowing much about this girl.

But she turned down 1.5 million cuz she wanted 2.5 instead.

Where is she going to make 2.5 now? Is she that talented?
