Cheryl Cole reportedly off of UK “X Factor,” as well

Hollywoodnews.com: Cheryl Cole continues to lose judging gigs.
After being replaced on the judge’s panel for Simon Cowell’s American version of “The X Factor” (allegedly because her British accent was deemed too thick), Cole is being dropped from the UK version of the show, where she has thrived for years. Instead, in a statement released to ITV, Cowell said that the four judges on the show will be Take That singer-songwriter Gary Barlow; Tulisa Contostavious of N-Dubz; Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland; and boy-band producer Louis Walsh.
“These four will be totally up for it, and each of them bring a different attitude,” Cowell said in a statement. “They have a ton of hits between them and they are all committed to finding a star.”
The rumor is that Cole was so upset at being kicked off of the U.S. “Factor” that she refused to take calls from Cowell regarding the UK version.
