'It's dead in the water'

Cheryl has launched a stinging rebuke to Simon Cowell's public attempts to explain the decision behind Cole's sacking, and has vowed that their close friendship is finito. Simon spoke to the tabloids yesterday and put Chezza's exit down to her nervousness in the US, a claim which the Geordie princess bitterly denies.

According to The Sun, 'If he thinks we are going to be friends he can forget it. If Simon thinks he can claim it was a business arrangement that went wrong, he is insane. She wasn't uncomfortable on the show. She was enjoying herself. No one complained at the time. Simon admits he got his top producer Richard Holloway to tell her she was off the US show - that's because he was afraid to do it himself. Cheryl trusted him implicitly and she doesn't do that with many people. He made a mockery of their friendship so now it's dead in the water.'

Now that's fighting talk...
