Cheryl Cole has revealed the expletive-filled text she sent to Simon Cowell after she was sacked from the US version of The X Factor in 2011.

The news appears in Cole's autobiography, which is being serialised in The Sun On Sunday. The text, sent to Cowell after an executive producer broke the news to Cole, reads:

"Fuck you. Fuck Britain's Got Talent. Fuck the orange and purple outfit. Fuck big hair. Fuck the UK X Factor. Fuck you all. I hate you. I understand you’re a businessman, and what I’ve learned from this is that business means more to you than friendship."

Cole also admits that her look on the show – an orange blouse and purple trousers combined with big hair – plus her Geordie accent were the source of problems for US audiences. After the first taping, she reports that Cowell told her: "The crazy hair goes tomorrow." She was fired having worked on the show for just four days.

Meanwhile, Gary Barlow stormed offstage on Sunday (October 7) night's British X Factor results show after fellow judge Louis Walsh dithered over a decision to eject Barlow's contestant Carolynne Poole or Nicole Scherzinger's contestant Rylan Clarke. Walsh eventually sent the vote to 'deadlock' and Poole lost out in the public vote. Poole was the first contestant eliminated from this year's competition. Barlow later branded the episode "an absolute joke".
