Cheryl Cole Spotted At Secret Meeting With Simon Cowell In LA

Cheryl Cole has been spotted arriving at Simon Cowell‘s mansion in Los Angeles, firing up rumours that the Girls Aloud star is in talks to return to The X Factor.

Cheryl was photographed arriving in a limousine with blacked-out windows on Wednesday night and spent three-and-a-half hours inside with Simon.

It’s thought that he is desperately trying to persuade her to return to the UK X Factor as a judge following a large dip in the current ratings.

The meeting comes just 18 months after Simon sensationally sacked Cheryl from The X Factor USA and replaced her with Nicole Scherzinger, who now sits on the UK panel. So somehow, we can’t see Chez jumping at the chance of a fresh start on the show.

Around 8 million people are watching The X Factor, compared to 20 million when Simon and Cheryl were judges. Eek!

What we wouldn’t give to have been a fly on Simon’s wall this week… RM
