Cheryl Cole ordered to ditch Hough?

Cheryl Cole has reportedly been told to dump ‘close friend’ Derek Hough to ensure success in the states.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: 'TV executives are thinking that if she's going to win over Hollywood, she'd be better off doing it as a sassy and single girl-about-town. Derek may be dreaming of worldwide stardom but he's seen as a small-time dancer on a TV show and pretty uncool.'

Fellow judge Simon Cowell is said to be lining up high-profile eligible bachelors for Cole to date, while fitness guru to the stars Tracy Anderson is working with her to create a body fit for LA.

The US X Factor judges hit Illinois at the weekend. Check out the pictures below…
