Cheryl Cole has reportedly started recording her new album in Los Angeles.
Following her sacking from The X Factor USA and her rumoured reunion with ex-hubby Ashley Cole, we almost forgot that Chezza was a full-fledged popstar, and now according to The Sun, the 28-year old is back in the studio Stateside.
The Girls Aloud beauty has apparently been laying down vocals at LA's famous studios underneath the Sunset Marquis hotel, where the likes of Madonna, Sheryl Crow, Cyndi Lauper and Chaka Khan have previously recorded material.
A source told the tabloid: "Cheryl has loved working at the studios. Some of the female singers that have worked there before are her all-time heroes. It's been the perfect place for Cheryl to plunge head-first back into work again."
While the Fight For This Love singer may be putting the last few months behind her, Chezza's brief appearance as a judge on The X Factor USA has been completely edited out of a new promo for the show.
The clip, which features Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Paula Abdul and Cole's replacement, Nicole Scherzinger, aired in the US earlier this week and paints the picture that the former Pussycat Dolls star was a panelist from the start.
A mole told The Mirror: "This really is a slap in the face for Cheryl. It shows that bosses are keen to forget about her ever being on the panel."
“If she does feature it will be a blink-and-you-miss-it feature. Most Americans will believe Nicole was always a judge.”
Never mind Chezza...
