And it would seem that Cheryl Cole’s latest champion to get her back on the X Factor is Katy Perry.

The 29-year-old singer, who previously worked with Cheryl when standing in as a guest judge on the show, urged Simon Cowell to pay the 30-year-old beauty ‘what it takes’ to get her back on the show.

She exclusively told omg’s source: “Of course I want to see Cheryl back on The X Factor – who doesn’t right? Simon don’t be mean – just pay her what it takes – The British Public want her back on their TV!”

She added: “Cheryl is absolutely adorable – and if I perform on The UK X Factor next season and Cheryl isn’t one of the judges – then Simon you are going to have me to answer to.”

You heard the woman Si, now get to work on signing Miss Cole up pronto!
