London: Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has dropped her new surname.

The 31-year-old singer will now be referred to as Cheryl, because she claims people are having difficulties pronouncing her married name, reportedly.

"It`s just Cheryl because everyone seems to be having a hard time saying it," she said.

Cole married boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini last month in a private ceremony on the island of Mustique after three months of dating.

Cole will return as a judge on `The X Factor` next month, alongside Simon Cowell, Mel B and Louis Walsh.
