Fellow UK X-Factor judge Louis Walsh has asked Cheryl Cole to come back to the show on these shores after the nations sweetheart shock exit from the US version after only a few weeks filming.

Just three weeks ago Cheryl was announced as a judge on the US version of the hit talent show and that she would be leaving alongside fellow judge Simon Cowell for stateside.

Leaving the fait of UK X-Factor in turmoil, Walsh and Dannii Minouge were the only remaining original judges but recently Dannii also quit her role on the UK panel as the dates reportedly clashed with her other engagements on Australia’s Got Talent.

Speaking to the Irish Daily Mirror Walsh said about Ms Cole: "I think she should return and I think most viewers feel the same.

She's a great asset. I honestly don't know what's going to happen at this stage but I'm 100 percent behind her returning."

The music manager went on to praise the Geordie Girls Aloud singer by saying: "Cheryl and I get on well. She's a soft, sweet girl. Not many people see that side of her," Walsh remarked. "Of course what happened in the States is a blow but she will bounce back from it with the right people around her.

"She's big enough to carry on being a big success and a massive hit with the viewers."

Rumours about the real reasons behind Cheryl’s departure are rife in the entertainment world, with many saying the 27-year-old was homesick and others saying the American audience struggled to connect and understand her strong Geordie accent, causing show bosses to make the drastic decision.

Chemistry between the judges is vital on the talent show and it is rumoured that Cheryl and fellow judge Paula Abdul, who consequentially is a massive hit in the states, struggled to get along behind the scenes or connect onscreen.

Simon and Cheryl had a clear bond during their stint in the UK and Dannii and Louis also had a close bond with a good level of rivalry between the four.

Speaking about Dannii’s recent shock departure Louis said: "I'm going to miss Dannii so it would be great to have at least Cheryl back."

There is a massive shake up this year with the judging panel both here and over the pond in the US.

Currently confirmed for the UK is Take That’s Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, US singer Kelly Rowland and the fourth spot is rumoured to be going to N-Dubz’s Tulisa Contostavlos, but it is still undecided, leaving a spot free for popular judge Cole to make a possible return.

It is said Nicole Scherzinger is now replacing Cheryl’s spot on the US panel alongside Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid with Steve Jones now presenting solo.

The X Factor UK auditions are due to begin filming in Birmingham next Wednesday so the XF Towers better make a decision quick.
