Cheryl Cole is reportedly planning to rebrand herself as "Cheryl Cole 2.0" after getting over the "hurt and pain" from being sacked from The X Factor USA. According to the Daily Mirror, Cheryl is now focusing on getting her career back on track with "big things" planned.
A friend told the tabloid: "The hurt and pain from what happened with the X Factor have gone now. She is back in control and saying she is a new person.
'We joke that it is Cheryl 2.0 – a new and improved version of our friend.
“Rightly or wrongly, what has happened has given her big exposure on both sides of the Atlantic and she aims to exploit that to the full. She has got some big ideas.”
The news comes after rumours fly around about whether the Girls Aloud star will be reuniting with her love rat ex-husband, Chelsea and England footballer Ashley Cole. The pair were spotted at the Geordie singer's birthday bash last month, but friends and family have been against a reunion.
“Cheryl has told her friends to trust her judgment, but they’re far from convinced," a source said. “Kimberley plans to make her feelings clear to Ashley: stop messing her around. It’s all or nothing this time. Cheryl’s closest friends are fiercely loyal and want to protect her.
“She has had a terrible time and they don’t want her making a mistake again.
However regardless of whether or not Cheryl will be getting back with Ashley, her main focus remains her career, pals say. Rumours suggest that the singer is wanted by the BBC for their X Factor rival series The Voice, while others hint she's set to go on tour this autumn.
“There are some big things in the pipeline," a spy in Cheryl's camp teased.
They blabbed: "Babies are certainly not on her agenda just yet but her career is. That is where all her energy is going in the next year.”
Let's hope it turns out a little better than Nadine 2.0...
