Speculation remains high over Cheryl Cole's next career move after she reportedly snubbed offers to return to the X Factor in the UK following her exit from the US version of the show.

According to reports, the 27-year-old was given an offer by the British X Factor camp but refused to pick up her phone around the time of the deadline that was given to her.

She is now understood to have returned to the UK, but there has been no confirmation as to whether she will return to judging the British version of the talent show.

Friends have claimed she is furious about her treatment and, according to the News of the World, she told a friend Simon Cowell did not give her a chance to prove herself.

The newspaper said she told a friend: “I did trust Simon, I let myself believe he had my best interests at heart.

“I never actually wanted to do the US show, I'm not a TV star. I had so many reservations but he pushed me into doing it. He told me I'd be a star over there.

“And he didn't even give me a chance to prove myself. I was gone after four days. I've been used. Why put me through it? It's cruel.”
