Cheryl Cole says it’s time for everyone to move on

The point of no return: Cheryl Cole took to her Twitter page today to announce that she would not be coming back to the X FactorThere has been much speculation over the past few months about Cheryl Cole returning to the X Factor judging panel this year.

From Simon Cowell saying he would love to have her back to Louis Walsh hinting that she is rejoining the show, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive.

But today, the lady in question finally put a halt to the reports when she took to her Twitter page to deny she was coming back.

And she asked everyone to get over it and move on.

The Girls Aloud star took to her page on the social networking site soon after it was reported that Louis Walsh said that he thinks she might be returning to the talent show later this year.

But Cheryl, 28, soon put paid to that and wrote on her page that everyone needs to stop talking about it now.

She wrote: ‘X factor was a great experience and time in my life and career but is now part of my past .. Please #letsmoveonnow #newnewspls Zzzzz *yawns*.’

Cheryl flew out to Los Angeles last May to join Cowell, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid on the judging panel on the first series of the X Factor USA.

But she was on her way home just a fortnight later amid claims that the American audience couldn’t understand her Geordie accent.

Today, Louis hinted that Cheryl could return to the British show later this year.

The pop mogul revealed that Kelly Rowland will not be coming back and suggested that the Girls Aloud star could be brought back in again.

He said: ‘I’ll tell you who the panel will be. It will be Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Tulisa and perhaps Cheryl Cole.’

Speaking to the Mirror at a Brits Awards after-party on Tuesday night, the 59-year-old added: ‘She could be back. I’m not saying she definitely will but I’d love to see her.’

But after she was fired from the US version, she was believed to been left feeling humiliated and angry with the way she was treated and Cowell said he felt bad and took full responsibility.

He said: ‘I regret what happened because Cheryl was a close friend.

‘She could be a panellist again if she wanted to – 100%.’

And sources at the show told the paper that they will ‘not stand in Simon’s way’ if he wants to bring Cheryl back.

Louis, who is the only remaining judge from the show’s original 2004 line-up, was speaking at the Arts Club in London after the award ceremony.

He showed off the results of his £30,000 hair transplant and said: ‘I’m just letting it grow, I haven’t cut it yet.’
