You Bet: Cheryl certain for X-Factor role
Despite reports that Cheryl Cole will snub the UK X Factor, the latest odds tell a different story.
A vast majority of William Hill punters have backed her to be a judge at 4/6. Hills are also offering odds of 11/10 that the Geordie takes no part in this year's competition.
"We think Cheryl is playing hard to get in order to increase her fee, the simple reality is that the X Factor is the reason she is a household name and she would be mad to ditch it," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
There has been a constant will she won't she which has generated a lot of interest surrounding her career. Whatever does happen we don't think this will be the end of her attempts to break the US.
