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

By Sean O’Connell 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.

    Some people still seem convinced that Cheryl is Irish or has an Irish accent.

    She’s English and has an English accent.
