Simon Cowell 'Wants Chezza Back On The X Factor USA'
Show boss reportedly ready to offer Cheryl Cole a multi-year deal...
Chezza was famously fired from the show back in 2011 - before being replaced with Nicole Scherzinger.
But now The Mirror claims that SiCo has admitted that a mistake was made when she was sacked - and that she could fill one of the seats left empty by Britney Spears and LA Reid.
A source said: "This is a massive move from Simon. He's going right out there and saying that he made a mistake in sacking her.
"After she was shunted off the show, TV critics in the US said in reviews that she was the best thing about the programme – and it seems for once that Simon was wrong.
"Over the past two seasons, the US X Factor hasn't performed as Simon would have wanted – now it looks like Cheryl will be the saviour."
And the paper also claims that Chezza is likely to be offered a lot more than the £1.1m she was getting paid when she got the boot before.
The source added: "He's planning to put a massive contract on the table in the coming weeks, giving her the opportunity to return and prove him wrong once and for all.
"Obviously, there's no certainty that she will decide to go for it, but it appears to be the closest right now to Cheryl returning to the X Factor family."
