Cheryl Cole has been told to ‘do her job’ or face being sacked from the X-Factor, according to reports.

Cheryl Cole 'near breaking point'

Mentor and friend Simon Cowell is believed to have called a crisis meeting with the singer after she refused to choose which one of her acts to send home last week, sparking more than 1,000 complaints from viewers.

But a source told the Daily Star that with American TV bosses also scrutinising the star to decide if she would be suitable for the US version of the show, the pressure is getting too much.

“Cheryl has to sparkle this weekend and regain her credibility,” the insider told the newspaper. “The trouble is she is a nervous wreck and terrified of putting a foot wrong.

“She will be under extraordinary scrutiny. What makes it more difficult is that her American dream seems to have gone up in smoke.”

They added, “Simon’s fully aware that the mentors get close to their acts, he does too. But they are also being paid to do a job. He wants this weekend’s show to be about the singing, not about the controversy.”


X Factor star Katie Waissel is reportedly at war with mentor Cheryl Cole.

According to The Sun, the contestant is furious that Cheryl wants her to perform ‘The Bitch Is Back’ for tonight’s Elton John theme and took it as a personal insult. She has since insisted on singing ‘Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)’.

She told the paper: “There were a couple of songs put forward to me. I liked the fighting spirit of the songs, but one goes a little too far. Do you know what? You can push things too far.”

A source added: “To say Katie is a diva is putting it mildly – she’s a complete nightmare. She is so rude to people and treats staff on the show like dirt. Cheryl has been livid with the way she’s been acting.

“She’s done her best to help her, but she still gets this rude backchat from her. And Katie isn’t honest with anyone. She fled to meet Amy Winehouse the other night and when we asked about it she just lied and said she didn’t.”

The report also claims that Waissel is unhappy with the amount of attention that Cole is giving to Cher Lloyd.

Cheryl gets pie in face for charity

Cheryl Cole has graciously accepted a custard pie in the face as royalty and fellow stars honoured some of the nation’s unsung heroes.

The pop star and X Factor judge volunteered for the treatment from schoolboy Cameron Small, who won Young Fund Raiser of the Year at the Pride of Britain awards.

The 12-year-old said he was “shocked” to be embarrassing the singer, adding: “I threw it hard and it hit her right in the face. Then she put some of it on me.”

But Cheryl said: “It was a small thing to do for such a brave young man.”

Cameron, from Preston, was named Littlewoods.com Young Fund Raiser of the Year after raising more than £95,000 for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

He won his chance to throw the pie after former X Factor contestant Darius Danesh won a charity auction with a £6,000 bid.

Host Carol Vorderman asked for volunteers from the audience to be the victim, and Cheryl bent down to receive the flan in the face.

Cameron said: “She took it quite well. She said it was the first time it’s ever felt good when that had happened.”

Treyc Cohen has made a controversial exit from The X Factor. The 26-year-old found herself in the bottom two alongside fellow sing-off veteran Katie Waissel.

Their mentor Cheryl Cole refused to choose between her acts.

After Simon Cowell opted to keep Katie, Cheryl made it clear that she would send the competition into deadlock, depending on how Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh voted.

However, the Girls Aloud singer didn’t get her chance because presenter Dermot O’Leary said they’d go with the majority vote; Dannii Minogue voted to send Katie home and Louis Walsh picked Treyc to go.

Treyc had attempted to save herself with Toni Braxton’s Unbreak My Heart, while Katie opted for soul classic Don’t Give Up On Me by Solomon Burke. She did it – Katie survived again.

It was [supposed to be] American Anthems week on The X Factor, but once again the judges, by and large, didn’t get the message. Compositions such as Kids In America, sung by Brit pop star Kim Wilde and written by her brother Ricky and father Marty, made it into the show.

Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole went another round in their bickering. The music mogul aimed a couple of barbed comments in Cheryl’s direction as he critiqued her acts.

While commenting on Cher Lloyd, he said: “I think your mentor got a little bit lazy.” Take a look through the gallery to see how each act fared in another very dramatic weekend of The X Factor.

Cheryl Cole and Cher Lloyd are in dispute, according to reports, over what to call the aspiring X Factor singer.

Cheryl Cole and Cher Lloyd are in dispute, according to reports, over what to call the aspiring X Factor singer.

The Sun said that Cher, who impressed judges with her rendition of Shakespears Sister ballad Stay on Saturday night, wants to be known as Cher-L but that her mentor, Cheryl, feels the new name is too similar to her own.

A show insider told the newspaper: “Cher has already been called a mini-Cheryl and now she could end up with almost the same name.”

Music chiefs came up with the idea of using the name Cher-L, using the first letter of her last name to rebrand the 17-year-old rapper, after the ITV series ends.

The singer cannot use the name Cher because of the US star.

The source continued: “X Factor chiefs want Cher to change her name after the show to give her something a bit edgier and more fitting to her image.

“They don’t like her having two names and think she should have something a bit different. She can’t be known as Cher so the idea of Cher-L came up – but her mentor didn’t like it as it was so similar to her own name.

“Cher loves Cheryl and values her input and ideas but it doesn’t look like she’ll get her way on this one.”

Ashley Cole is trying to get the number of a woman who looks just like his ex-wife Cheryl that he’s seen on TV.

The England footballer has set his sights on 90210 star Jessica Lowndes after seeing her appear on TV while she’s been in the UK promoting her new singing career.

She even appeared on one of his favourite shows, Soccer AM, and the footballer has made a few calls to try and get hold of her number.

A source said to UK newspaper The Sun: “Ashley saw her on TV and liked what he saw. He has connections in the industry and wanted to get in touch. You can see why he likes her – she looks like Cheryl.”
