X Factor: Louis Walsh says Cheryl Cole has agreed to 2012 Girls Aloud reunion
Cheryl Cole has reportedly agreed to reunite with her old Girls Aloud bandmates, after she was cruelly sacked from The X Factor USA.
The ‘Promise This’ hitmaker was dumped from the judging panel of Simon Cowell’s hit TV show last week and insiders say she intends to put reality TV behind her for good and resurrect the popular girl group. Louis Walsh has claimed that Cole and her bandmates Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh and Nadine Coyle will now focus on arranging a UK tour.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at the Wonderland launch at the Wyld Bar at the W Hotel, London, he said: “I’ve been on the phone to Cheryl all day, honestly I can show you texts, she’s fine. She’s getting back with Girls Aloud in 2012 and they’re going to tour.”
Cheryl’s decision to reunite with Girls Aloud comes after it was revealed she decided not to return to the UK version of the show and both she and the other female judge Dannii Minogue were replaced by Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland.
A source said: “She just isn’t in the right state of mind at the moment to go headfirst into a new show.
“She’s all over the place, emotionally she’s very fragile. Starting filming on Wednesday would be far too soon.”
