Simon Cowell has revealed the reason why he sacked Cheryl Cole, from the US version of the X Factor.

Cowell told the Radio Times: "When I saw her I didn't recognise her. Literally. The hair and outfit were crazy. Just totally crazy.

"I asked her manager, 'What's she wearing, what's happened to her hair?'

"He was defensive about it. I haven't a clue why she turned up like that.

"She'd put on a bit of weight, but not loads. That wasn't the issue.

"The only way I can describe it is that it wasn't Cheryl sitting in that seat. She'd lost her confidence."

"The worst it got between us was when she sent me a text message.

"It was like when you get a really horrible letter from an ex-girlfriend. The general tone was something along the lines of, 'You've hurt me, you've let me down, I can never forgive you'. I shrank."
