Cheryl Cole has apparently cancelled plans to spend Christmas in LA and will be heading to her home town of Newcastle instead.
X Factor judge Cheryl Cole was due to spend the festive season in LA with pal Derek Hough, but has decided after such a turbulent year she’d rather have Christmas at home in Newcastle with her family.
Poor Derek is said to be devastated by Chezza’s decision, as he’d be getting his new home ready for her arrival.
A source revealed: “She told him she’s exhausted and sick to death of travelling and just wants to be at home and have a chilled-out Christmas.”
The songstress, who is preparing to launch her solo career in the US during 2011, says she sees Christmas as one of her last opportunities to spend time with her family before relocating indefinitely.
The source added: “She said she wants to spend the whole period in casual clothes and not even leave the house.
“She really misses her brothers and nephews, if she is going to be spending so much time in the US next year, she wants to make the most of time at home with her family while she can.”
