Cheryl Cole has to decide today (06.06.11) if she will accept an offer to return to the US ‘X Factor’.

The 27-year-old beauty – who was shockingly sacked from the judging panel of the show after just four days – was offered her job back on Friday (03.06.11), and with the next set of auditions set to take place in New York on Wednesday (08.06.11), she has little time to make a decision but is still unsure whether she wants to return to America.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “It’s far from certain she will say yes.

“It’s a tough decision because it’s a huge show. There’s still a lot of pain there. At last Cheryl is in charge of the situation. She’s finally calling the shots, but she’s really not sure.”

It has been claimed that Fox executives are hoping she will turn down the offer to return because they don’t want to pay her the £1.2 million fee for the four auditions she already recorded alongside fellow judges Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Paula Abdul and believe they can claim she is in breach of her contract if she refuses to take her job back – but the singer has kept hold of emails proving she was fired.

A friend of Cheryl’s told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “They’re hoping it’s a no show so they don’t have to pay her. But that plan falls flat when you look at the fact of that matter – the she’s already been fired.

“There was a meeting attended by Cheryl where it was made clear it wasn’t working. Then there are emails and messages to the same effect.

“For the network to try and wriggle out of it by suggesting otherwise is nonsense. If she doesn’t turn up to re-take her place on the panel, she is not in breach of her contract – because Fox breached it themselves.”

Is it just us, or is this all beginning to smell of a huge publicity stunt?
