PR guru reckons The X Factor judge will get recognition


Max Clifford predicts that Cheryl Cole‘s career will take off now that she’s split from husband Ashley.

The showbiz guru says their separation will get the Girls Aloud star noticed across the pond.

From a PR point of view, it is the first time American journalists are aware of her,’ says Max, 66.

They are rapidly becoming more aware because Simon Cowell has taken her under his wing and he and The X Factor are huge out there.’

But Max realises that Cheryl, 26, will want to keep a low profile while she deals with her heartache. 

It must have been a hard decision because clearly she loves him,’ he tells Sky News. In spite of everything, that will have been very, very painful.’

The couple’s split follows allegations the Chelsea footballer Ashley, 29, cheated on Cheryl.
