Chery Cole returned to 'The X Factor' yesterday (19.09.10) amid a scene of chaos, as the ''home'' she was using for the next round of auditions wasn't fully built
Cheryl Cole's 'X Factor' return ended in disaster yesterday (19.09.10) - as her "home" wasn't fully built.
The Girls Aloud beauty was set to return to filming the reality show this weekend, after taking a few months off the show after falling ill with malaria, but as she turned up at her rented country house to film the Judges Houses' round of the competition, the building was surrounded in scaffolding and work still being finished
A source told The Sun newspaper: "It was a letdown. The builders had to be told to stop work. All the acts were clearly affected."
Work on the mansion in Ascot, Berkshire even continued as Cheryl and her pal Will.I.Am watched performances by acts shortlisted for her group, as she decided who she wants to take through to the live finals.
At one point, workmen even dropped scaffolding during one performance, distracting both artist and Cheryl.
The 27-year-old beauty reportedly threw her arms in the air and exclaimed: "What was that about?"
Filming had to be halted once again when someone started cleaning up with a vacuum cleaner.
Meanwhile, as this year's contestants throw themselves into the show, wannabe winner Marlon McKenzie admits he is going all out in a bid to impress the judges - and his fellow female contestants.
The pop star hopeful split from his ex-girlfriend, Cleopatra singer Cleo Higgins last year and has been working out in a bid to improve his chances of finding a new girlfriend.
He said: "All the other boys are looking good and everybody has a good body. If I'm going to compete with them and get a new girlfriend I have to be dedicated."
