Cheryl Cole emerged from hiding today with a new blonde bob

Cheryl Cole turns 28 tomorrow and is planning a big birthday celebration to prove she's over her US X Factor humiliation.

The Geordie singer, who was dropped as a judge from the show last month, is reportedly splashing £20,000 on the lavish bash.

'You are invited to celebrate Cheryl's birthday,' reads the posh purple and black invite sent to her nearest and dearest.

'Friday 1st July. 9pm til late.

'Venue to be advised. London.' 

One person who isn't expected to get an invite to the showbiz event of the year is X Factor boss Simon Cowell, 51.

'Cheryl felt humiliated by Simon and they are not on speaking terms,' a source tells the Daily Mirror. 'Cheryl will forgive him, but she'll never forget.'
