Cheryl Cole is in talks with Simon Cowell about her future following her sudden exit from the US version of The X Factor according to Sinitta.

Sinitta told ITV’s Daybreak: “All I can say is Simon and Cheryl are very close and I believe that they are in talks trying to sort something out and as soon as they agree on something then we'll hear about it.”

Cole is reported to be back in the Britain following departure from the Fox show, and a decision on the judges for the eighth series of the UK show is expected to be made soon, with filming due to start next week.

ITV is said to be keen for Cole to return, but none of the judging panel has been confirmed so far with Cowell stepping down to concentrate on the US while Dannii Minogue has quit to focus on Australia's Got Talent.
