Cheryl Cole has been 'forced' to shoot scenes for the US version of The X Factor.

The singer was sacked from the show in May. Although no official reason was given, it was speculated that contestants found it hard to understand her accent and that Cole didn't get on with fellow judge Paula Abdul.

According to Tellymix, Cole has to return to the show as part of her deal with US network Fox, which paid Cole’s full £1.5 million fee for just the four shows. She now needs to return to the programme to film scenes to help the transition between her and Nicole Scherzinger as a judge.

A source is quoted as saying: "She made no secret of the fact that she does not want to go – and agreed only because TV channel Fox bosses gave her no option.

"They need her to film some scenes in order to make her brief appearance on the panel make sense to the viewers (and) she really isn’t happy about it.”
