X Factor judge said to have viewed houses


Cheryl Cole may relocate to the States now she’s separated from husband Ashley.

The Girls Aloud star, 26, returned home yesterday after a week-long trip to LA.

And she’s said to have viewed several properties while she was there. 

Cheryl‘s rumoured to be joining Simon Cowell, 50, on the panel of the US version of The X Factor.

‘This will give her the impetus she needed,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘She has always put Ashley‘s career first which is why she was torn about America.

‘Now she can start afresh, commit to her recording career over there and, of course, really give US X Factor a go.

‘In a strange way, this terrible episode could be the making of her.’

The split follows allegations the Chelsea footballer Ashley, 29, cheated on her.
