X-Factor judge Louis Walsh says Cheryl Cole saga is not a publicity stunt
Louis Walsh says that Simon Cowell put his neck on the block to give Cheryl Cole a chance in the US and the ongoing saga over her sacking is not a publicity stunt. Louis was speaking as he left his hotel in Glasgow for the X-Factor auditions in Scotland with new judges Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos.
X Factor judge Kelly Rowland is seen here making her way through Los Angeles airport as she returned to the UK.
The star says she is unaware of Simon Cowell's ultimatum to return to the show within 48 hours or else she faces being replaced as a judge on the British version of the reality show.
The 30-year-old explains that she wasn't on last week's X Factor because she had a throat infection and that there is no drama behind the scenes on the singing competition.
