Cheryl To Return To X Factor In 2013 To Boost Ratings?
Reports claim Tulisa could face the chop if Chezza makes a comeback...
Cheryl Cole is apparently gearing up to return to The X Factor in a bid to boost ratings. As we previously reported, Chezza was said to have met up withSimon Cowellat his LA home last week to discuss her comeback to the ITV1 show - with The Mirror now suggesting that the pair had "verbally agreed" to work together again.
The Girls Aloud star's manager, Will.I.Am, was also overheard telling guests at a gala in London on Saturday (8th December): "It’s going to be dope.”
A source added: "Cheryl is coming back on TV in 2013 and will be working with Simon. People love to watch her. She was with X Factor at its peak."
The Call My Name singer's apparent return means that Tulisa could be facing the boot following Nicole Scherzinger's success in her first year as a judge on the UK show.
The newspaper claims that Gary Barlow may also jump ship, and that SiCo is still yet to decide the fate of Louis Walsh - who he may keep to be his "eyes and ears" on the panel.
The insider stated: “There are going to be the biggest changes ever on the show. We have to respond to the drop in ratings and level of interest."
This year's X Factor final on Saturday is thought to have accumulated the lowest ratings since 2005.
