Girls Aloud’s Cheryl Cole ‘so proud’ but is she heading back to X Factor?

Cheryl Cole has been praising her loyal fans again, after they reached a special fundraising target they’d set earlier in the week.

A few days ago the former X Factor judge shared a Comic Relief video on Twitter in which she can be heard lending her voice to an appeal that aims to raise the awareness of malaria in Africa.

Of course the Girls Aloud star was struck down with the disease in 2010, after holidaying in the region with Derek Hough and when she was later admitted to hospital in London on her return, she was close to death for a number of days.

In her name, some of Chez’s fans decided to start their own fundraising campaign, in which they would raise cash for the cause so close to her heart. Yesterday they revealed that they’d reached the £3,000 mark and she tweeted them saying:

“MY GOD.. You’ve done it!! You reached your target of £3,000 for comic relief ! ….”

Cole added:

“And the BEST bit about it all is no one asked you to!!! It was all you! You’re so amazing. I’m so proud to call you ours #AloudersfightMalaria”

She continued:

“Thank you thank you thank you .. You have saved hundreds of lives!!! Be proud of yourselves 👼#teamworkmakesthedreamwork”

Cheryl is coming to the end of her Girls Aloud Reunion tour and arrived in Belfast today for the latest gig. She seemed excited to be back in Ireland and posted:

“Night night peeps. See you in Ireland !! Belfast.. Be there soon ! You ready??!!! We’re excited !”

Cole may have a bit of a gap in her schedule coming up but it seems that Simon Cowell wants to be the one to fill it. Insiders have claimed that after sacking her from The X Factor USA in 2011, he has now decided that he wants her back and has offered the brunette beauty a big money contract to return.

A source told The Mirror:

‘This is massive move from Simon. He’s going right out there and saying that he made a mistake in sacking her.

‘After she was shunted off the show, TV critics in the US said she was the best thing about the programme. Over the past two season the US X Factor hasn’t performed as Simon would have wanted.

‘Now it looks like Cheryl will be the saviour.’

We are a little bit torn over this story, as on one hand we’re kind of hoping that Cheryl doesn’t go back, after she was so badly snubbed, however the show would definitely benefit from her presence.
