London: Media mogul Simon Cowell says pop star Cheryl Cole was good at judging his talent show `X Factor` and he may find a way to bring her back on the reality series.

Earlier it was rumoured that Cole, who was sacked from `The X Factor` USA after a brief stint as a judge, was in negotiations with the bosses for a return to the UK version of show, reported Daily Mirror.

"She was a really, really good judge. I mean, she took what she did seriously. She used to phone me almost every night ? one, two, three o`clock in the morning, talking about songs and what she should be doing," Cowell, 54, said.

"That`s the kind of judge you want to be working with on these shows, because they really care. I hope we`re going to get the chance to work together. We have to find a way because we had a lot of fun," he added.

The pair are once again on speaking terms after their falling out in 2011.
