Simon Cowell wants Cheryl Cole back at any cost

Simon Cowell wants Cheryl Cole back at any cost London: ‘The X Factor’ boss Simon Cowell is desperate to get singer Cheryl Cole back as judge on the show`s British version.

Cheryl, 29, judged the show in 2008, but her position was later given to singer Nicole Scherzinger. Now the show`s ratings are said to have gone for a dip and it is said to have lost out on almost 3 million viewers.

So, Cowell wants Cheryl to be back.
