Twilight star Robert Pattinson is apparently a big fan of The X Factor UK, and he’s revealed that he misses seeing Cheryl Cole on the judges’ bench, and he’d like her to come back. Well, who wouldn’t?

However, Twitter has been rife with rumour of late that Chezzer’s headed back to X Factor USA to replace Britney Spears. More on that in a moment…

But first, of what Robert had to say, he told the Mirror, “I would like to see Cheryl back on the UK X Factor.

“It is never going to be the same now Simon is not there anymore — but having Cheryl back would be good for the show…

“It hasn’t been the same since the two of them left — and if there is a chance to get her back Simon should.

“In fact Simon should do both shows.

Well Robert, the idea that Simon could or should do both shows has been mooted for about six hundred years now, however, he revealed late last year that he doesn’t fancy the idea of jetting between the UK and the States every week, which is fair enough. I get antsy on a two-hour flight to Malaga…

Anyway, back to the rumour that Cheryl could be headed back to X Factor USA – from which she was of course embarrassingly dumped just days after starting work as a judge last year – and it began with a report in the New York Post which claimed the Girls Aloud singer was “in talks” with XF USA bosses.

Apparently, those talks began when it was revealed Cheryl was suing the production company behind XF USA for loss of earnings, however, she’s now dropped that legal action, and the NYP reckons that was part of a the comeback deal.

And as the lawsuit would’ve netted her around $2.3million had she won it, I would guess the talks have included a lot of big numbers.

What do you think? Would – or should – Cheryl consider going back after the humiliation she suffered on the show?

For now, here’s a reminder of her very brief time in the States…
