Is Nicole Leaving X Factor, Is Cheryl Cole Joining? – a source close to Nicole Scherzinger has announced she is leaving the X Factor as Simon Cowell is making a return and Cheryl Cole is in talks to also return.

Although it seems that it is already a done deal 2 UK newspapers are currently taking a different view on the matter. The Sun is reporting that Nicole has already made her mind up and will be leaving the show whereas the Mail is saying that they have spoken to Nicole’s representative and the decision has not yet been made.
