Cheryl Cole To Return For X Factor Live Shows?
Simon Cowell apparently wants his "golden girl" back on the UK panel...
A source told the publication: "The panel have been finding their feet slowly. But it's no secret that Cheryl was Simon's golden girl. If she came back, it would be a huge fanfare."
"Of course, if they announce Cheryl was coming back, there would be immediate worries that she would be replacing someone."
When asked how Cole's return would work, the insider explained: "It's an extremely closely guarded secret. Some people know about this yet, but Cheryl is in talks to come back as a guest judge on the live shows."
"And while nothing is signed or set in stone, everyone involved knows it's going to be the most explosive thing The X Factor's ever seen."
The mole then stated that the N-Dubz star Tulisa should be worried by Chezza's rumoured return, with the source claiming: "There have been concerns from the start that Tulisa lacked the star power of the others on the panel."
They added: "When the live shows start and the pressure mounts, Cheryl could totally outshine Tulisa in a guest role."
The insider went on to confess that Cole has "struggled" seeing Contostavlos in her seat on the panel, and that the new line-up "should be scared" if Cheryl does end up returning for the live shows.
