Cheryl Cole's bad week continues: Out as 'X Factor' UK judge too
Days after her unceremonious booting from the judges' table of the upcoming US "X Factor," it's been announced that she no longer has a gig on the British original.
"X Factor" announced panelists for the 2011 run include returning judge Louis Walsh, Take That singer Gary Barlow, hip-hop star Tulisa Contostavlos and Destiny's Child alum Kelly Rowland. No mention of Cole was made.
British network ITV isn't the only camp keeping mum about Cole. FOX and producers of the U.S. "X Factor" still decline to comment on the reported judges' shake-up, which sees Pussycat Doll and "Dancing With the Stars" champ Nicole Scherzinger moving from co-host to Cole's spot as judge.
Rumored reasons for Cole's "X Factor" dismissal include her strong Northern English accent and a lack of chemistry with fellow host Paula Abdul.
