X Factor judge Louis Walsh has rubbished press reports which suggested Cheryl Cole had signed a new deal with ITV for the UK X Factor. Chatting to News Of The World, Walsh - who last month said nothing had been confirmed about the panel line up - seemed confident Cheryl would be moving to the states.

Speaking about the rumours that Cheryl will stay on the UK show, Louis Walsh said: "hat's rubbish. She's going to the states and is going to be a big star."

The Irish music mogul revealed he was currently in the process of negotiating his new contract to seal his return to the show, and hinted Dannii Minogue would also return.

Despite the possibility of the judging panel getting a big shake up this year, Louis was confident that the show won't suffer without Cheryl or Simon Cowell.
