London: Cheryl Cole might make a comeback on the UK ‘X Factor’ to help her replacement Tulisa Contostavlos at the judges’ houses phase.

“Producers are desperate to bring Cheryl back in some way or another,” an ‘X-Factor’ source told the Daily Star.

“One option being discussed is for her to come back for the judges’ homes week.

“Theoretically, she could help out Gary Barlow or Tulisa because she is good friends with them both. But the general consensus is that Tulisa would be better,” the source explained.

An insider added that Cole has already been offered the chance to come back and mentor the contestants during the live rounds. Even she would also be asked to perform with one of the contestants in the grand finale.

The step might have been taken to show the nation that Cole isn’t bitter about Contostavlos replacing her on the panel.
