Cheryl Cole

Gone From 'X Factor'


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.

Simon was her biggest fan..he changed the rules of the show as he went along last series purely so Cheryls acts wouldnt go out..and when even HE says that it wasnt working then there is problems. The simple fact is that once she joined our show...she clung onto Simon like there was no tomorrow and sat next to him all the time. When the other judges criticised her as a mentor or s a judge she would turn to Simon for him to stick up for her. She didnt really get on with the other judges at all and i thought all along this would be the case with the American x factor. On the American version Paula was next to Simon and so Cheryls act couldnt work which caused her major problems. At the end of the day she will get £1.5 million for 4 days work. She was offered £2.5 million to go back to the British version once it became apparent that it wasnt going to work in America so it can hardly be said that shes the poor victim. Another thing that surprised many of us was that she was even allowed to work there with her criminal record. The thing is you guys see this sweet little English girl..and really she isnt. Shes hard as nails.
