No 1: Cheryl Cole fired from US X Factor
It was supposed to be her big US break.
But just three weeks after Cheryl began filming as a judge on the Stateside X Factor, she was sensationally dropped.
Rumours swirled: Americans couldn’t understand her Geordie accent; she was homesick; there was a ‘lack of chemistry’ with fellow judge Paula Abdul…
With TV network Fox unconvinced she could win viewers over, she was dismissed and flew home, apparently ‘royally pissed off’.
Nicole Scherzinger stepped in and Chezza’s been off our screens ever since.
Still, we hear Geordie Shore might be recruiting…
