Former 'X Factor' judge Cheryl Cole has reportedly signed a £1.5 million TV comeback deal to front a number of prime-time shows on ITV
Cheryl Cole has reportedly signed a £1.5 million TV comeback deal.
The Girls Aloud singer - who was axed as a judge on US 'X Factor' earlier this year after just a few weeks on the singing competition - is set to front a number of prime-time programmes for ITV, as well as a possible chat show, after the network beat off competition from Sky and Channel 5 for her signature.
A source close to the star told The People newspaper: "Cheryl's been inundated with offers but knows ITV and its staff from her 'X Factor' days so has gone with them.
"The exact contract details are to be thrashed out but Cheryl is determined to take a well deserved break until next year."
The 28-year-old beauty is thought to have agreed a deal to appear on one of the channel's 'An Evening With' programmes - which feature a question and answer session with a celebrity - and could front a new chat show that will see her talking to stars from the world of music, sport and fashion.
ITV chiefs are said to have been "doing cartwheels" after agreeing the deal with the former 'X Factor' panellist, who previously turned down a comeback role as a judge on the show following her sacking from the US version.
BBC bosses reportedly approached Cheryl to be a judge on their new 'X Factor' style talent show 'The Voice' earlier this year.
