Cheryl Cole 'Given Six-Week Deadline For The X Factor Decision'
Pop star reported to be stalling on signing-up to return to ITV's flagship talent show...
The former Girls Aloud star is reported to have been dragging her feet over signing up for the ITV talent show, even though Simon Cowell has now officially announced his return.
A source told The Mirror: "She is in a good place, the best she's ever been.
"She is focused on her music career and doesn't know whether she wants to throw herself back into the spotlight to this degree again."
But SiCo is reportedly beginning to lose patience with the Geordie lass.
"He doesn't really understand what there is to mull over and just wants it sorted out," the source explained.
"Contracts will need to be signed in May. If Cheryl is going to pull out they need to have someone else to go after. They are hoping for an answer in the next six weeks."
Louis Walsh is reported to have been given the nod to return as well - leaving just one gap on the panel if Chezza does sign-up.
Rita Ora is claimed to be Cowell's top target, with Dannii Minogue also in the frame.
