We can’t cope with all these changes.

It appears the new series of The X Factor is set to have even more changes and only weeks before filming starts.

It’s already been revealed that Nick Grimshaw, Caroline Flack and Olly Murs won’t be returning to the series and that Dermot O’Leary is back at the helm of the show, taking his rightful positions as host.

But now, the latest rumour is that Cheryl has quit the show. The Sun are claiming that she wants to concentrate on her music.

A source told them, “Cheryl told Simon of her decision at dinner last week in LA. They have had many discussions about the new series but she finally made up her mind.

“Her relationship with Simon is the best it’s ever been and they both are incredibly supportive of each other.

“Last year was one of her favourite series, she had a lot of fun mentoring her groups and enjoyed working closely with the production team on the show.”

They also added, “Music is her number one passion and she has just started working on a new album which she wants out later this year. She’s having a great time in the US with Liam and getting back to her pop roots.

“Simon understands her reasons. He is supportive. X Factor will always be a special show for her as it changed her life.”
