This means war!

So, today we heard the dreadful news that Cheryl is still holed up in her hotel room, and the X Factor juggernaut has rolled on without her. The confirmed line-up for the show is Tulisa Contostavlos, Louis Walsh, Kelly Rowland and Gary Barlow. Cheryl's new manager, Will.i.am (yes, we know - bizarre) apparently demanded that ITV give Cole £2.5m to return to the show, a request which was turned down.

A chatty source told the Daily Mail, ‘Will.i.am doesn’t want her to have anything to do with Cowell anymore. Cowell thought she would come running back and take the UK job – but why would she when she’s been hung out to dry in the U.S.’

An X Factor source told the paper, 'There was a Plan A we already had which we’re happy with and is a great team. It got to a point with Cheryl where we had to move on. It was her decision to go to the U.S. and it did not work out. The bottom line is the line-up we’ve got we are happy with.’

Yes, X Factor source, but do you have a line-up that the public are happy with? That's a big fat 'no' from us...
