  • Cheryl Cole offered £1 million to stay at X Factor

    Cheryl Cole has obviously made a huge impression on X Factor bigwig Simon Cowell – he’s offered the star £1 million to judge on the next series of the hit TV show.

    Cowell is so happy with Cole’s performance, he’s already desperate to get her signed up for next year’s show, according to the Mirror.

    But he’ll have hot competition from her band, Girls Aloud, who are set to do a US tour next year.

    An insider on the show told the paper: ‘Cheryl has been an instant hit with viewers and contestants.

    ‘She initially signed a one-year deal as she wasn’t sure how she would fare and Simon didn’t want to commit to an unknown quantity. Now he’s desperate to get her for a new series and put pen to paper.

    ‘He realises he will have to fight to keep her as Girls Aloud are in talks to do a US tour.’
