X Factor 2011: Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell to meet again!

Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole

X Factor boss Simon Cowell is reportedly planning to meet Cheryl Cole face to face for the first time since ditching her from The X Factor USA in May. While it may only be to tell her off for her cheeky birthday prank last week, it's sure to be a step forward for the pair's relationship.

While the pair have chatted before, this will be the first time they've spoken face to face for nearly 5 months, The Sun reports today.

A source blabbed to the tabloid: "It had been pretty frosty for a while but Cheryl has mellowed and they've turned a corner.

"Simon has always wanted to remain friends with her but it's understandable how she needed time to calm down. Now they're on talking terms and banter is in full swing, they're discussing a meet, which is likely to be in LA."

We’d love to be a fly on the wall...
