- Cheryl Has Got A Great Plan To Mix Up ‘The X Factor'

The Radio 1 DJ reportedly left fellow judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini fuming when he referred to her by her old name - Cheryl Cole.
The panel had watched a father and daughter duo perform at auditions at London’s SSE Arena earlier this week, when he turned to the former Girls Aloud singer to ask for her comments, declaring: “Let’s start with Cheryl Cole.”
Simon Cowell also shouted “awkward” repeatedly down his microphone.
Cheryl snapped back: “Just call me Cheryl. Or Chezza.”
Cheryl dropped ‘Cole’ from her name when she married Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini last year.
She was previously married to footballer Ashley Cole, but their marriage broke down when it emerged he had cheated on her several times.
It isn’t the first time Grimmy has made the gaffe though, as The Sun reports that he also called Cheryl by her previous name on his Radio 1 Breakfast Show, describing Jean Bernard as her “boyfriend”, before quickly correcting himself.
