However, Cowell reveals himself & Chezza are back on talking terms again...
Speaking at the Television Critics' Association Press tour, SiCo claimed [uuid=86aa912e-2045-45b6-a7b9-5475266eb1e9]Girls Aloudbeauty almost accepted his offer to return to the UK judging panel, but her public sacking from The X Factor USA made the headlines Stateside.
Cowell stated: "After two cities, I offered her the job back in the UK, which initially she accepted. And then unfortunately, when it went public the negotiations fell apart. For certain reasons, [she] decided not to [come back to the U.K.] And that's why it ended up the way it is,"
The 51-year old then confirmed that himself and Cheryl have kissed and made up since their XF spat, with Simon claiming: "We have texted. I am sorry the way it worked out as we were incredibly close."
He added: "It was a decision I thought was the right one. I think she is more comfortable in England. Maybe I didn’t give her enough time and you have to be in the moment.”
