Cheryl needs to calm down a lot

With The X Factor auditions for the UK edition of the show in full swing, the new line-up of judges are still trying to get to know each other. Things got off to a bad start for BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw, who made the mistake of calling Cheryl Fernandez-Versini by her former marital name of Cheryl Cole.

Following Nick’s blunder, Cole, I mean Fernandez-Versini, snapped: “It’s Cheryl or Chezza!” Meanwhile, fellow judge Rita Ora responded: “I’m backing away!” and Simon Cowell added: “Awkward!” I can understand Cheryl correcting Nick but Cole, thanks to her ex-hubby Ashley Cole, is the name she used as a solo artist for years and that’s how most people still remember her! I think she should concentrate less on how she’s addressed and more on her average pop career!
