London: Talent scout Arlene Phillips says Cheryl Cole doesn`t need the US version of "The X factor" as the singer is capable of doing well even without her role on the series.

Cole was axed from the US version of the "The X factor" show last month. However Phillips, who also judged British television show "Strictly Come Dancing" believes that the 27-year-old will be able to do well provided she follows her lead and gets over it quickly.

"That initial bruise - that moment you hear - never goes away, you will remember that. What you have to do is put that aside, put it in a little box, tie it up with a ribbon and leave it there because otherwise that little sting will keep coming back. Just move on," femalefirst.co.uk quoted the 68-year-old as saying.

"Cheryl is loved here, she has the world at her feet. She doesn`t need `X Factor` USA," she added.
