Cheryl Cole Will Still Get Full Salary For X-Factor

Cheryl Cole may have lost her seat alongside the judges for X-Factor, but she won’t lose a penny from the £1.2 million she was promised for the show.

Despite being sacked just four days into rehearsal, she’ll take home her full salary for the season.

Cheryl reportedly was fired from the judges’ panel because of “lack of chemistry” with Paula Abdul. Paula basically didn’t want to sit next to someone half her age and ten times more beautiful. The official reason she was canned was because of her thick accent.

Simon Cowell finally broke his silence about the whole thing saying “I feel guilty” and insisted his “hands were tied” by network executives at Fox.

A source close to the TV mogul told The Sun newspaper: "He loves
Cheryl and did everything in his power to get her on US TV.

"But channel chiefs just weren't happy. It was a necessary evil and he
feels terribly guilty about it.”

So now Cheryl is out and Nicole Scherzinger is in. There’s so much drama surrounding the show, I’m already over watching it. Are you excited about the show?
