Straight from the horse's mouth

You've been pretty obsessed with the twists and turns of Cheryl's X Factor journey, right? Well would you like to read the reasons for Chezza's US dream turning sour, straight from the horse's mouth? We bet you would. Read on...

Simon Cowell told The Daily Mail, ‘A hundred per cent I have to take full responsibility, because I do have a lot of sway. This has been a rough two weeks. The hardest thing to accept is that everyone has painted me as a monster because I embarrassed her. But the truth was I was protecting her. I apologise that all this has become public and I understand the stress she is under, and I hate that. But we have all been under a lot of stress.'

Simon continued his tale of celeb woe, ‘She was certainly interested in coming back to the U.K. as we exchanged a few texts and she asked if she could have my dressing room at the studio and I said 'of course'. Her management even asked for a legal waiver to her contract on the U.S. show allowing her to open discussions with ITV. So we genuinely thought it was going to happen. But the big condition was that it was to be kept under wraps and she would make a big entrance last week at the Birmingham auditions and everyone would have loved it. But when the story got out it changed everything.'

Yes Simon, it certainly did. And now we're stuck with that goon out of N-Dubz. Thanks for that...
