Simon Cowell has admitted Cheryl Cole is “one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life”.
The media mogul, whose Britain’s Got Talent hit returns to ITV this week, says he was knocked off his feet by the petite star when he signed her as a judge on his X Factor show in 2008.
Meanwhile the 53-year-old has confirmed he is very much a ladies man, telling the Radio Times he often hires female TV judges based – at first – on their looks.
Asked if he hires “women he fancies” the star laughs: “A lot of them, yes, I’m not going to lie.”
As for Cheryl, 29, he says: “I think my entire production staff – including a lot of gay people – were madly in love with Cheryl.
“I mean, literally, when she walked on set on the first day in the UK I thought that she was one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life.
“I mean, genuinely. She was just absolutely stunning. She still is but I remember that day vividly as in ‘God, you are gorgeous’.”
Asked if it bothered him when people say he is gay, he replied: “I work in possibly the gayest industry in the world! Music and TV! It would make no difference to my life or my career.
“A lot of my friends are gay, but I’m not and don’t even think that way any more. I couldn’t care less [if people think I’m gay] because it’s nothing to be ashamed of.”
The star said that while “not looking” for marriage, he was happy when in long-term relationships.
“I’m happy single, and when I’m in relationships as well. I tend to be in a relationship more than being single.
“Terri [Seymour] lasted six years, Mezhgan [Hussainy] lasted two years, and that was in a nine-year block, so I was only single for about a year out of those nine.
“But I’m very good on my own, a) because I never get bored and b) because there is always something I need to catch up on.”
He describes the falling-out with Cole as a time he became public enemy number one – “she didn’t like me very much” – but says they have made it up.
Simon Cowell, WomenSimon Cowell has admitted hiring women he fancies on a regular basis
“It’s almost back to where we were.”
Cowell revealed that two weeks before the show started taping, Cole wasn’t comfortable in the U.S.. and was expressing hesitation about going through with the deal. Through her representatives (Cole is co-managed by Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am and his business partner Seth Friedman), Cole began to inquire about a return to the U.K. version.
“I came to the conclusion that she may not be as comfortable here because I was seeing a different person,” he says. “She was like Princess Diana when she would walk out in England, and I accepted the fact that people didn’t know her here, but I think it did have an effect on her.”
Cole’s quiet demeanor on camera prompted a call from Cowell on Day 2 of filming. “I said: ‘Cheryl, you’ve got to raise your game a bit. This is America, it’s a much tougher market.’”
Cowell explored the idea of having her return to the U.K. show and had even secured a substantial pay raise (more than $4 million, according to a source);
24 hours later, they were negotiating the offer. “We had gotten to the point where she wanted my dressing room,” Cowell continues. But Cowell says Cole then never responded to the final offer. They haven’t spoken since.
Cowell readily admits that he’s “not happy with the way it played out.” At the same time, he adds, “I wouldn’t be doing my job as a producer if I didn’t do what was right for my shows. I stand by the decisions I’ve made, and I knew the implications when I did it publicly — that I was going to get slaughtered, and I did.”
Still, he’d hire Cole for another project “in a heartbeat — you’re not drowning puppies here. You’re offering someone who’s got millions of dollars more money and more work. And if people think that’s cruel, then they can do that to me on a daily basis. I’ll take it twice a day.”
After all the drama over casting the judges for FOX’s upcoming “The X Factor,” judge and producer Simon Cowell tells Zap2it he may have been wrong about axing Cheryl Cole and takes the responsibility.
Cole, a wildly popular singer in the U.K. and a judge on the show there, was initially in the line-up for the American version of the singing contest debuting Sept. 21.
“I worked with her for years in the U.K., and she was sensational,” he says. “We shot a couple of days, and I just had a feeling — and I was probably wrong – and I think she would disagree with this. And I thought she would be more comfortable on the U.K. show, and we spoke to her.”
“Initially she agreed to it, and we were way into a negotiation,” Cowell says. “And it all went public and it all went horribly wrong. And she was offered to come back to the show. And she didn’t want to go on that. It was one of those decisions you have to make as a producer.”
ITV execs confirmed today that Simon Cowell will not be doing this year’s X Factor in the UK to concentrate on making the US version.
However, the ITV director of television, Peter Fincham, said he was “completely comfortable” with Cowell’s absence from the show.
“Some of the speculation about us pleading with Simon to be a judge makes me smile,” said Fincham. “I constantly hear we are in crisis but in reality we have an amazingly constructive relationship with Simon and are very much reading from the same page.
“We are talking to him about ways he can have an on-screen presence later in the show. He will not be a weekly judge, but he will be an enormous presence backstage as always.”
ITV signed a new three-year contract to broadcast the two shows last year, in a deal said to be worth £20m to Cowell, who also co-produces The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent through his company Syco. But his growing US commitments have led to intense speculation about his on-screen involvement in the UK shows.
The broadcaster will confirm Cowell’s replacement in the next few weeks, along with the rest of The X Factor panel. Cheryl Cole, the show’s biggest star after Cowell, may also follow him to the US.
What will this mean for Cheryl? Well, this pretty much confirms Cheryl’s exit aswell regardless of her doing the US one or not, so stay tuned and find out the announcement in the next few weeks.
So the speculation continues! Looks like Simon may or may not have made a slip up when he appeared on a Fox talk show being asked who the confirmed judges are and saying “yes” to Cheryl being confirmed a judge on US X Factor. Click above to watch the video, the hosts also spends a few moments talking about Cheryl at the end.
The U.S. version of the British smash “The X Factor” won’t even premiere until fall, and already the talent show is making headlines. You can thank show creator Simon Cowell for that, because the Brit knows how to create buzz and make headlines.
For instance, the show offers an astonishing $5 million recording contract to the victor, meaning you probably won’t see any Taylor Hicks-style winners. Last week, producer Antonio “L.A.” Reid was signed on to judge, and names like Mariah Carey, Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole (from the U.K. version) have been tossed around for the other two spots on the panel.
Cowell, just as well-spoken as he was in his “American Idol” chair, talked about the show during a call from his California office.
Q: Does it matter if the remaining judges are British or American?
A: I don’t think it matters particularly. You know, a good singer is a good singer.
Q: So is Cheryl Cole still in the running?
A: She’s in the running, certainly. Cheryl’s a great judge and she did a fantastic job for three years in England. She’s incredibly popular and very talented, and I believe the American public would feel the same way about her as they do in England.
Q: Can you say who else is in the running?
A: (Long pause) I’m not going to. I’d probably offend somebody (by leaving them out). If you have been reading the stories, you’ve probably got the right names.
Check out a radio interview Simon Cowell did today in the US where once again, he talks about Cheryl, calling her “gorgeous”. But I’m dead at the DJ calling it a “Georgie” accent and saying Cheryl was a “host” on the show. Oh sweet jesus.
Simon Cowell has insisted that he will scrap plans for the US X Factor unless he is allowed to give Cheryl Cole a job on the judging panel, says a report.
TV executives for the Fox network are not convinced that Cheryl will be a hit with American viewers on the planned show.
Sources told the Daily Star Sunday that they believe that the Girls Aloud singer is “too much of an unknown quantity” in the US.
The insider told the newspaper that Cowell is a loggerheads with his colleagues in Los Angeles.
The show source said: “Simon is clashing heads with US producers who don’t want Cheryl on board.
“Bosses are convinced the show needs big US stars to compete with the star-studded line-up of American Idol.
“The American public don’t know who Cheryl is and just `being a good friend of Simon’s from some unknown girlband’ isn’t cutting it.”
The source added: “Simon’s had some heated phone calls with the producers. He thinks Cheryl is perfect for the role.”
Cheryl Ann Tweedy Cole is a British pop singer. First came out to the scene when she won a singing competition Popstars: The Rivals forming a girl group Girls Aloud. With 6 studio albums, and 20 Top 10 singles, has since gained even larger success by becoming a judge on British talent show The X Factor.
