Singer Cheryl Cole fears she’ll fade into oblivion as The X Factor proves a success without her


As the nation’s sweetheart, Cheryl Cole had the world at her feet.

Her solo career was going from strength to strength and the public loved her.

But following her sacking from the US X Factor and with Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland, proving a hit on the UK show, Cheryl, 28, now fears it’s only a matter of time before everyone forgets her.

It’s been a tough year for her but now that the X Factor bandwagon’s up and running again it’s almost unbearable,’ a source tells Now.

This time of year is normally so exciting for Cheryl, especially with the cloak and dagger aspect of keeping her acts secret.

‘Now, by comparison, things are soul-destroying.

She’s turning into a recluse.’
